Spelling is a vital link in literacy instruction. Solid instruction in the patterns of English for reading and spelling is lacking in most general education classrooms. Teacher training courses do not provide strong instruction in these patterns, resulting in a lack of strong instruction in the classroom. Current research supports the link between strong spelling instruction and improved reading skills. This interactive presentation leads participants through activities to reveal predictable spelling patterns in the English language.
TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine ways to integrate and review phonics, spelling and vocabulary through daily activities in the classroom.
