Captivating ways to practise spelling during daily life
This confidence-building technique is suitable for children aged 4 through to adults. Allow under five minutes for this lesson. It is a follow-on activity from First Spellings (above) and revises all that has been learnt in a richly multi-sensory way while doing everyday activities like cooking, travelling or playing.

A gentle introduction to spelling independently - the focus is on sound analysis
This technique is suitable for children aged 4 through to adults. Allow under ten minutes for this lesson. This technique follows on from Level Two Vowels Sounds Lessons and is designed for dyslexics and dyspraxics who know the vowel sounds (A, E, I, O, U) and some consonants (non-vowel letters, such as T) and who have practised sound-blending a vowel with a consonant. At this stage the practice of spelling can be initiated. This technique again uses tactile, multi-sensory methods combined with minimal writing to introduce the practice of writing down sounds as spellings.
