2018 Reading, Literacy & Learning Virtual Conference

F15 - Savvy Spelling Skills

Oct 26, 2018 9:45am ‐ Oct 26, 2018 11:15am


Learning to spell adequately requires explicit instruction and a purposeful integration of knowledge about print, speech sounds, and meaning. Students must be given adequate opportunities to integrate newly learned skills to develop into accurate and automatic spellers. In this hands-on, interactive workshop, participants are exposed to creative multisensory methods for teaching spelling. They practice with the concepts introduced and leave with tools and manipulatives they can immediately implement in their classrooms.

Learning Objectives:

  • HANDWRITING/WRITTEN LANGUAGE: Identify effective practices and strategies for written language.
  • MULTISENSORY STRUCTURED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION: Assess multisensory language instruction and how it can effectively be taught in a classroom setting.
  • MULTISENSORY STRUCTURED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION: Recognize the nature of dyslexia and related language learning disabilities and the role of multisensory structured language instruction (MSL).
  • RESEARCH: Examine research findings and implications for practice relevant to students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities.
  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine ways to integrate and review phonics, spelling and vocabulary through daily activities in the classroom.
