In this class, we will cover 8 common sounds in our English language and learners will be given explicit directions on how to spell these sounds. Class is taught in an upbeat, encouraging, and multi-sensory environment. Students will learn to spell words correctly by relying on their ability to determine the spelling of these common sounds, such as: • ind • age • ous vs. us • au vs. aw Each...
Students will learn how to correctly determine the spelling of 8 common sounds in the English language and be able to apply this in all spelling situations.

She has homeschooled her children for 12 years and has seen the benefit of teaching direct spelling instruction to her own children, specifically the help it gives to struggling spellers and readers. Her experience also includes tutoring English Language Arts to 2nd – 6th graders and teaching faith formation classes to children in pre-K through 8th grade.
A short homework assignment will be posted after each class to reinforce the spelling rules learned. This should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Once the one-page homework is submitted, the teacher will respond within 24 hours with corrections, detailed feedback, encouragement, and added spelling tips when applicable.
