Spellings for Me

Spellings for Me

A Revolutionary Individualised Spelling Programme for Primary School Children Outline

“No two children will have the same spellings, as no two children are the same”.

  • It brings differentiation to new levels

  • Each child will get lists of spellings specific to their spelling needs

  • Each child will be appropriately challenged

  • It is based on ability not age or class

  • Promotes a visual approach to spellings

  • Created by primary school teachers

    Review from Brendan Culligan, Author of: Improving Children's Spelling, Spelling and Handwriting

    When providing CPD for teachers, I am regularly asked to recommend a practical computer program that would contribute to the development and progression of children’s spelling ability. Spellings For Me has long been overdue and as an Irish production, it ticks all the boxes for what teachers require of such a program.  The teachers’ manual, which accompanies the program, clearly explains how to set up and activate the program. Ascertaining the child’s automatic spellings ability level is achieved through various tests. Dictation exercises and differentiation are integral parts of the programme. Self-correction is encouraged and any errors/miscues are placed in a “learning words” folder. When these words do become part of the child’s automatic spelling vocabulary they are placed in a “mastered words” folder. Opportunity for revising these “mastered words” is central to the whole program.  Emma and Patrick, both young teachers, are to be commended for this innovative program, which will have a huge effect on children’s spellings development both in the classroom and in the home.” Brendan Culligan
