    “Those who are natural spellers don’t spell well by accident. They have learned certain things. This book is an attempt to focus on those things” I’ll tell you what; a severely delayed plane in an airport with zero entertainment makes for excellent professional reading time. I was one of the many children educated in the era of “Don’t worry, the students will learn how to spell through diffusion...”. Now, I like to think that I came out of this relatively unscathed. I am lucky enough to have a go “Those who are natural spellers don’t spell well by accident. They have learned certain things. This book is an attempt to focus on those things” I’ll tell you what; a severely delayed plane in an airport with zero entertainment makes for excellent professional reading time. I was one of the many children educated in the era of “Don’t worry, the students will learn how to spell through diffusion...”. Now, I like to think that I came out of this relatively unscathed. I am lucky enough to have a good visual memory and looked for rules in my spelling myself. I could see patterns and I used this to my advantage. But I know many who were let down by this system in a big way. Many of my family members and close friends struggled and continue to struggle with spelling. Sometimes this means that they avoid using certain words simply because they are unsure of the spelling. Regardless of your spelling knowledge and ability there is no denying that it’s important. Spelling denotes your capacity to communicate effectively with the world around you. If you are confident in your ability to spell then you are more confident in you ability to communicate with others. This textbook is a very practical and straightforward approach to teaching spelling. This is the main reason why I rated it so highly. It gives educators the strategies and language required to explicitly teach spelling rules; from homophones through to which base words should double their final consonant when adding a suffix. It contains lesson plans, scripts and worksheets to use in the classroom across most year levels. I will be using this heavily next semester in my spelling program. I have found, even with just implementing a couple of these lessons this term, that my students yearn for rules. They want to know how to tell if a word is spelt correctly or not. This program will give them this knowledge so that they can become confident communicators in the future. Recommended to literacy educators Format: paperback Rating: 5/5 Stars 2018: 23/40 books
