Who's it for?

Anyone who wants to improve literacy through spelling and works with readers beyond the emergent phase.

What's the format?

The book is an A4 manual - light to keep the postage down - and coil bound for easy copying of the script, student worksheets and the spelling options chart.

Any extras?

You'll also receive a pdf of more than 300 words, coded for puzzles and with hints for the trickier ones. The list is made up of words from my own 40 words list, the UK statutory spelling lists for years 3, 4, 5 and 6, the 'Dirty 30' words commonly misspelt at GCSE and a general vocabulary list from the Framework for Teaching English years 7-9.

We'll keep the spelling vibe going on Twitter and Facebook with word of the week and the opportunity to suggest your own students' nemesis words.

If I read the book, can I still come on the training?

Yes! The training will be part me talking through the content of the book and part interactive - loads of practice to become confident using this successful methodology with sticky notes, a white board and your own words. Imporve literacy in any situation through spelling.

Does this work with That Reading Thing?

Yes - this makes a grea add-on to TRT when you're ready to more spelling and writing, usually after about Level 20.
