This resource supports the inquiry approach being used in spelling tasks. Students have the chance investigate the features of a word as well as developing how a knowledge of spelling patterns can help them read and write new words.
Conceptual inquiry focus: Form and function of how to spell
Some of the key spelling focuses include
Connected words (Word families or words with similar meanings)
Word Function (noun, verb, adjective)
Special spelling features (prefixes, suffixes, double vowels, etc)
Word meaning- supporting comprehension
Translations (Links to students' first languages- supporting TESOL strategies and skills)
Use this resource as you begin investigating vocabulary for a new unit and provide opportunities for students to link what they currently now with new words and their own first language.
The graphic organiser can be printed in colour or black and white and easily enlarged to A3 size.
This resource can be used to support students’ choice and voice in how they want to organise and share information or ideas. Providing a range of graphic organisers in the class supports differentiation and supports scaffolding the different thinking styles of the students' in your class.
