SMART Spelling

 Teachers love it because it’s sensible and schools love it because it’s systematic.


As a classroom teacher, I felt very underprepared by my formal university qualifications to teach spelling. I was thoroughly confused about blends, graphemes and don’t get me started on all the spelling rules!!! 


Well now I know better!


I developed a sensible way to teach spelling.  It’s called ‘The SMART Spelling Approach’.  Teachers love it because it makes sense and is ‘doable’ in a classroom. Schools love it because it’s systematic.  SMART Spelling is a structured, multi sensory approach that caters for different levels of spelling ability in one class.   


The SMART Spelling manual clearly outlines a Prep – 6 scope and sequence for teaching spelling.  It gives teachers a way to explicitly teach: sound – letter links (The Alphabetic Principle), syllables, the 44 different sounds and their most common spelling patterns.

At a SMART Spelling course I will show you how to...

  • implement a weekly routine for teaching spelling
  • teach intentionally – one spelling pattern at a time
  • give meaningful feedback in writing to teach spelling incidentally – at the point of need
  • differentiate spelling words…easily!!!
  • teach the most effective 4 spelling rules
  • teach with a range of fun spelling activities
  • use the free digital materials that will save you time
  • use your copy of the SMART Spelling manual (valued at $88 that you get for FREE)
