We all know children learn visually! Gone are the days when children were forced to memorise long winded mnemonics that had a string of words making a sentence in the belief that children remembered them when needed for their spelling. Iconic Mnemonics have been designed by a teacher with an illustration and graphic design background that focuses directly on the known specific tricky section of common 'demon words'. Whether it is the 'nes' in Wednesday, the differences between 'bye' and 'buy' or the first 'a' in 'separate,' 74 high resolution colourful posters will undoubtedly prevent confusion. They can be taught and displayed in the class or at home. When a child 'discovers' the concept or identifies the connection between the word and the visual representation in my posters, the child will be guaranteed to remember them.
