Spelling ability reflects a child’s understanding of the connection between letters and sounds, as well as their understanding of alternative letter (grapheme) combinations. Therefore, spelling is a complex skill involving multiple components, including visual memory, phoneme-grapheme awareness, and even knowledge of word etymology.
LiteracyPlanet’s Spelling strand has been developed with the understanding that spelling and vocabulary knowledge is fundamental to student success in both reading and writing. Knowing how to spell a word and understand its meaning in context is key to literacy development.
Our program enables students to learn and acquire thousands of new words that can be applied in real-world contexts.
