Spelling is often the most difficult skill for struggling readers to master. The irregularity of English doesn't help any of us! In these two classes, you will learn: 1. Why both phonemic awareness (we'll define this, don't worry) and visual memory are needed for spelling and how to strengthen each. 2. How to use each sense to nail spelling: hearing, vision, movement, touch. 4. How the chunks of words (morphemes) are usually put together. 5. Why spelling words correctly on a spelling test...
I believe spelling matters because it helps others understand you and take you and your ideas seriously. I'm trained in Lindamood Bell Phoneme Sequencing Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech(LIPS), Lindamood Bell Visualizing and Verbalizing Program, Phonographix, Read Naturally, Take Aim, Unlocking Literacy, and have a comprehensive training, from Dr. William Stixrud, (a leading neuropsychologist in the Washington, D.C. area and author of The Self-Driven Child: The Science and Sense of Giving Your Kids More Control Over Their Lives), to work with students of all ages who have language-based learning disabilities. One of my two graduate degrees is in writing. I subsequently helped Dr. Stixrud train tutors, parents, and teachers in these strategies that work, for six years. I've taught thousands of students and can troubleshoot individual challenges with sensitivity and skill based on over 40 years experience teaching.
5 files available upon enrollmentBEFORE THE FIRST CLASS Students should each send me a list of 10-20 words they would like to learn how to spell, along with how they misspell each word.
