Supporting Children with Fun Rules for Tricky Spellings: An Illustrated Storybook and Workbook SET / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Taylor & Francis
This beautifully illustrated storybook and workbook set has been created to support learners who, after acquiring the basics of reading and writing, have struggled to organically grasp the rules that govern spelling in the English language. The colourful storybook tells the story of the ‘Super Spelling School for Letters’, and the teacher who helps all the students come together to make words. Twenty-two of the most important spelling rules are explored and given meaning through the engaging story, each followed by a ‘quick quiz’ to help solidify the rule in the long-term memory. In the fully photocopiable workbook, activity pages for each rule develop reading, spelling and writing skills, allowing the child to put the rules into practice.
Key features include:
- An engaging story that connects the spelling rules together and gives them meaning, making them easier to remember
- Quirky and colourful illustrations, allowing children to visualise the spelling rules and the way they work in the English language
- A practical workbook filled with activities and quizzes
Developed with feedback from teachers and students, this is an invaluable resource for teachers and parents looking to support learners who find spelling a challenge, or who are learning English as an additional language.
