Teaching Spelling in Middle to Upper Primary School

Following on from our previous popular post on Teaching Spelling in Junior Primary is this new post on applying the concepts to Middle and Upper Primary.

So welcome again to another PLD Literacy and Learning Insight – short 5 minute videos designed to assist the teaching of Literacy Development principles.

Today’s Teaching Tip is about Teaching Spelling in Middle to Upper Primary School and specifically – how to slow children down to ‘sound-out’ as they spell and write.

Spelling is more difficult than reading. It is relatively common to find children who read well, but whose spelling is poorer. The teaching tip outlines how to teach spelling more effectively for older students.

As always, if you wish to discuss any of the concepts in this video or have any comments you wish to make, we would love hear from you at our Facebook page  or via the contact page on this website.
