Fun with Spelling
How do children learn to read and write words?  In a rich and balanced program, teachers provide many learning opportunities for all children to gain the knowledge and experiences necessary to look at how words work.

  • Children need to hear written language so they can learn its structure and take in new information and ideas.
  • Children need to become aware of the sounds of language, to enjoy those sounds, and to use the knowledge as a tool.
  • Children need to have many experiences working with written symbols and to explore words and learn how they work.

The spelling links represent a wide range of knowledge, abilities and strategies for children to become effective word solvers and provides suggestions for professional development for teachers.
