I worked with a small group of children in the Support setting for the last 6 months with the “Spell Rite Right” programme.
The variety of exercises in the Spell Rite Right programme made it enjoyable to use and continuously held the students’ interest.
Each unit has clever methods and mental strategies to help the children remember the spellings. In some cases they even made up their own hints.
The anagrams, word searches, games and puzzles provided a fun way of testing how much they had learned at the end of each unit.
I noticed an improvement in spelling after completing the first three units and the children told me they were also using the hints when doing their schoolwork. This is the main reason I feel that the programme was successful.
I would highly recommend Read Rite Right as it is non-repetitive and the problem solving methods are a fun way to teach difficult spellings.
