Innovative Spelling is a technique which helps teachers and students for whom the traditional materials/spelling practice does not work. It moves them to think outside of the box, guiding them do what many strong spellers do naturally on their own- create strategies to aid in recall using mental pictures, playing with words or sounds, connecting to words they already know, etc. Many do this instinctively. But some students need modeling and practice to learn this type of thinking.
Innovative Spelling helps students at any level of ability to do so. It is a great tool, because it not only provides differentiation via increased scaffolding support and improved learning, but it also is teaching students a lifelong skill.
