…And Spellings

and now the spelling strategy… it’s an NLP visualisation strategy whereby one gets the children to stabilise their pictures. Once they’re stable to then using their imagination to ‘see’ things up above their eye level eg say a dog with the spelling of the word on the dog itself.  Once they are proficient at spelling simple words backwards and forwards using this method of recall then the object is removed and a ‘whiteboard’ is put in its place. I ask the children to put their spellings onto post it notes up above their own height level at home so they can learn them individually.  Its a shame that as yet, this is not on the teacher training courses – amongst other things…
