Register to attend the Spelling Mastery Workshop here.  

Purpose: Assist students to learn dependable spelling skills

Age: 5-13 (Grade Levels 1–6)

Spelling Mastery builds dependable spelling skills for students in Grades 1–6 through a highly structured direct instruction method that blends the following approaches:

  1. Phonemic approach - helps beginning spellers learn the relationships between spoken sounds and written letters and then apply them to spelling
  2. Morphemic approach - exposes advanced spellers to prefixes, bases, and suffixes
  3. Whole-word approach - gives spellers at all levels the meaning and root of a word and shows how the word's spelling is influenced.

Spelling Mastery interweaves these three approaches according to students' skill development and provides straightforward lessons to help efficiently and effectively teach the spelling skills students need to become proficient readers and writers.

Explicit instruction, careful selection of spelling words, and repeated and cumulative practice help students master each concept and reinforce and retain key information.
