What is Spellings for Me?
In Carrigeen NS, we are addressing the teaching of spelling. We have worked hard over the past number of years to embrace the latest proven methods for the teaching of spellings. We are delighted that these methods are now so popular in progressive schools in Ireland that two teachers in Dublin have created a great resource to support this method of teaching spelling.
This programme is essentially a tailor-made spelling programme. Your child’s spellings will be solely based on the words that they do not know how to spell, working at their own level. No two children will have the same spellings, as no two children are the same.
Spellings for Me incorporates meaningful, enjoyable activities for your child, that are proven to improve children’s spellings. It embraces continuous learning and assessment throughout your child’s whole spelling journey through primary school. Your child will have spellings to practice each week and will complete spelling activities both online and in their own workbook.
