READ, SOUND, WRITE, CHECK – learning to spell with phonics
Many children have a poor visual memory and as hard as they try, they are unable to remember the 'shape' of the word. This is why they forget how to spell the words either before the spelling test or soon after. We believe that children need to base their spelling on the sound in the words.
These templates follow our suggested approach: READ, SOUND, WRITE, CHECK. This method helps children learn to spell by using sounds and syllables to spell words.
