PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a full year’s developmentally appropriate spelling programme for 4 year olds designed to provide teachers with a clear progression of spelling patterns for children to work on. The emphasis is on having fun with words whilst learning and applying the spelling rules and conventions, and on targeting the child’s specific needs.

By following this programme, the children in my class have made great progress, as well as enjoying the fun aspect included with the sensory activities and the games. Parents have appreciated being involved with the “helping at home” activities too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Included in this download you will find:

♦Instructions for teachers
♦Instructions for parents with lots of fun ideas ideas of how parents can help at home
♦A spelling test to help set each child’s programme for the term or year – the test can also be used to check progress of the children at any time. The test also gives a sentence containing each word to help children put the words into context for ease of administration
♦Spelling test sheet for children to record their responses when doing the spelling test
40 lists in total – enough for an entire year, including high frequency words
♦A set of 40 spelling lists - each list includes:
> Up to 5 words which follow the rule to be learned (spelling pattern is colour coded)
> A high frequency word to learn (colour coded)
> A description of the spelling convention being learned in each list

In my classroom, I have laminated each list and I keep several sets of lists in a central place so that children have easy access when they need to record their new spellings into their spelling books. You could print the lists your children need and paste them into the children’s workbooks if you prefer.
♦Ideas for parents to help their children at home
♦A format for further practise comprising more activities to help children use all of their senses in learning and retaining the spellings, for use at home or at school

At this stage, the emphasis is on having fun with words, so all of the suggested activities are integrated with sensory and movement elements to help the child use the whole body in language learning.
In my classroom, children do a variety of written and also play based activities. I include the Spelling Activities sheet in the pack I provide to parents as some children develop favourite ways to interact with their words and like to repeat activities at home and school.
