One of the most difficult aspects of learning to spell is that English is not a phonetic language. Only about half of the words in English can be spelled simply by ‘sounding out’. The rest need knowledge that sounds in words can be spelled in many ways.
Clever Speller combines Phonics with Whole Language to help make sense of crazy English spelling.
Purpose written, traditional picture book style stories are full of words showing the many different ways to spell a focus sound.
Beautifully illustrated with engaging characters and a proper narrative story, Story Based Learning will bring your spelling alive.
