Spelling & Comprehension for 6Y-8Y Olds
Research has found that spelling, reading, writing & comprehension skills are all closely linked. A study conducted by L.C. Ehri for the Scientific Study of Reading found that spelling instruction improves reading ability, as it builds a learner’s knowledge of the alphabetic system. When one assembles letters to form words correctly, they are also building confidence in all aspects of literacy.
Teaching young children spelling strategies, rules and concepts helps grow their vocabulary knowledge and spelling confidence. It also takes away the fear of long or complicated words and children become more confident at attempting to spell words in their vocabulary as well as words not there in their repertoire. It also helps children to convey their ideas in written as well as verbal formats, thereby making them effective communicators for life.

I enrolled my son so that he could do better at his Spell Bee competition, but was amazed to see how it just went beyond spellings and build my son’s interest in reading and writing as well.
My daughter apart from learning how to read big words, has also learnt the art of using phrases in the writing.
