F oreword This multisensory spelling series introduces strategies that feature Look, Say, Trace, Cover, Write and Check which promote independent learning of spelling in context. The series features a proven metacognitive approach to spelling. The metacognitive approach encompasses logical and systematic thinking, combined with the skills of visualisation, emotion and creativity. Through using all aspects of thinking, children not only learn how to spell but also learn how to retain and use these words in context. Success with this series is achieved through the reinforcement activities provided in the My Spelling Workbook series. These workbooks cover the strategies in a fun, creative way ensuring that both the child and the teacher enjoy the learning process.

pl

e

The teachers guides provide the metacognitive strategies. These are clearly outlined using flash cards, assessment sheets, extra activities, guidelines for use with children with special needs, extension activities for more able children, dictation, word lists and answers. Each workbook contains 18 lists of commonly used words to develop a base vocabulary for primary school children. These help to develop independent spellers through a variety of activites including: • •

memory tests; discovering patterns in words.

T eacher I nformation Each workbook contains 18 spelling units. Each unit is made up of four pages, with each unit containing: a list of 22 words to be learned; space for additional words to be added; word building and word study activities; and revision words from the previous workbook. The first page of each unit contains the list words. Before the children see the list, it is recommended that the words are pre-tested. This can be used as a benchmark for how well the children learn the list or which words they need to focus on throughout the unit.

e

• • • •

m

pl

Each list has a series of test columns. Three ticks in a row indicate that the word has been learned. If three successive ticks are not achieved, a ‘T’ is placed in the transfer box and the word is written in ‘Difficult Words I Have Found’ in the next unit.

Sa

A post-test is then required at the conclusion of the two-week programme to evaluate the children’s progress. Problem words are recorded and transferred, ready for their personal list in the next unit.

Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check – This represents the basic method recommended for word learning. Children should follow this multisensory process when learning each word. It is a proven method of retaining a word in the memory and should be a procedure that is followed consistently, to assist with the learning of further words.

As well as for transferring difficult words from a previous unit, ‘Difficult Words I Have Found’ can also be used to list other words of interest. These words can be partner tested during the spelling programme.

Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check

Vi

Look at the word. Look for words within words. Look at the shape of the word.

Look

Cover the word. (A time factor can be built into this part. Test after one minute, 10 minutes, one hour, the next day etc.)

Say

Say each letter aloud: either as its letter name or sound.

The unit list is also repeated for further reference on the third page of each unit, along with a revision list of words from the previous level of My Spelling Workbook.

C urriculum L inks All children need to attain, progressively, mastery of conventional spelling. The revised English Language curriculum states that this mastery is most likely to be achieved if spelling is taught systematically, using a whole-school multi-dimensional approach, used consistently in each class. The popular My Spelling Workbook series has been revised and provides the ideal multi-dimensional approach to spelling for infant through to sixth class pupils. The revised English Language curriculum for Ireland states that pupils should have opportunities to develop the ability to: Class

S pelling T imetable Teachers can use the activities in My Spelling Workbook to suit the needs of their class and the amount of time available for spelling. A 10-day spelling programme for each list is suggested below, as a way of using this workbook. It allows for 25 minutes each day, which could be a combination of class work and homework. Teachers may wish to add or delete from this timetable, according to their needs. This timetable is based on a metacognitive approach, which is explained in detail on the following pages. Daily partner testing is a key feature of the timetable, allowing children to practise 3 – 5 list words at a time. A worksheet for recording partner test results is provided on page 15.

M etacognitive A pproach Aim:

To encourage children to become successful independent spellers and thinkers.

Introductory Stage: • Each category of question (Clarifying, Literal, Inferential, Personal, Visualising, Predictive, Summarising and Reflective) should be explained to the children. It is important that they understand what kind of question they are asking. • Not all cards will be relevant in every situation. On occasion, they will be. • Some of the questions may appear to be the same but are repeated under different categories. This is because the context is different and this should be explained to the children. Preparation Stage:

e

• The teacher chooses a suitable spelling word. A word that encompasses all the categories of questions is better. However, it should be stressed that not all categories are relevant to every word. For example, ‘yesterday’.

pl

• The cards are displayed for all children to see. Teachers might prefer to enlarge the cards to A3 when photocopying or laminate them. (See pages 6 – 13). Modelling Stage:

m

• The teacher models a word, for example, ‘yesterday’. The teacher demonstrates the thinking process involved by applying the questions suggested in the relevant categories and ‘talking’ through his or her answers. • Allowing children to interact with the teacher using this process can be very productive. Explanation of Question Types:

in

g

Sa

Clarifying questions are questions that make words, phrases or concepts clear and understandable. For example: What is the word? yesterday What does this word mean? the day after today Does it have an easily recognisable root? day Can the word be broken into smaller sounds? yes—ter—day

Vi

ew

Literal questions are questions that have a straightforward answer found in the text. For example: What is the tricky part of the word? ter Is there a rule for this word? no

Inferential questions are questions that ask you to deduce answers from the text. For example: Can I think of some other way to help remember how to spell this word? break the word into three little words: yes, ter, day

Personal questions are questions that are relevant to oneself. For example: Is there a rhythm in the word? yes Is there a familiar sound in this word? ay Is this a word that I need to learn to spell? yes, because I use this word regularly

My Spelling Workbook Book F – Teachers Guide

Prim-Ed Publishing


M etacognitive A pproach

e

Visualising questions are questions that require you to ‘see’ the word or shape in your mind. For example: Close your eyes. Can I see the word inside my head? yes/no Can I see the shape of the word?

Sa

m

pl

Predictive questions are questions that require you to forecast a possible outcome. For example: Can I give another word with a similar spelling? today has the same ending Can I spell this word? yes/no Can I write it from memory and say each letter as I do it? t–o–d–a–y

Vi

ew

in

g

Summarising questions are questions that demand a reiteration and understanding of what went before. For example: Can I state the rule for this word? there isn’t a rule Can I make a sentence for this word? yes – Yesterday I went swimming with my friend. Can I write this word in a dictated passage? yes/no

Reflective questions review the strategies used to learn new words and how you feel about your progress. For example: How did I do? happy/ reasonably happy/ unhappy Were my choices of strategies effective? yes/no Will learning how to spell this word help me to spell other words? yes/no Was there anybody or anything that could have helped me? I could have used a dictionary or got my family to test me. How do I feel? happy/ reasonably happy/ unhappy

The ‘Reflective Questions’ card should be used as a challenge for every child. It is designed to extend the more successful speller. It also offers the opportunity for individuals to recognise their own areas of strengths and weaknesses. This card should be used either at the end of the lesson or after the dictation to reflect on success and to set new goals for themselves. The following pages contain a set of cards for encouraging this way of thinking. Prim-Ed Publishing

A dditional A ctivities Partner and Group Activities Partner activities – Develops cooperation and increases knowledge of list words. Strategy Examples Children make their own read-and-illustrate activities to swap with a partner.

Jumble words and swap with a partner.

For example, ‘school’ becomes ‘oslhco’. As an extra challenge, children can create jumbled words that can be pronounced.

Jumble sentences using list words and swap with a partner.

For example, ‘The cat sat on the mat’ becomes ‘Eht tca tas no eht tma’. Children who need a challenge could also jumble the order of the words around!

Make word searches or crossword puzzles on grid paper and swap with a partner.

This can be simply done by making a grid, and inserting the list of spelling words horizontally and vertically. Any gaps are filled with random letters in a word search, or are coloured black in a crossword.

Make yes/no questions or true/false statements containing list words and swap with a partner.

Word dominoes

For example, ‘Is a frog a reptile?’; ‘Do we see clouds in the sky?’

For example, A list of words that end in ‘ight’: tight, right, flight, might, sight; Words that end with a silent ‘e’: made, same, shake.

Put list words into sentences – individually or as a whole class.

For example, each word could be written on a piece of card. Children can take one card each, and put themselves in a line so the order of words makes sense. Cards with common words like ‘a’, ‘and’, ‘the’, will need to be used also.

A dditional A ctivities Partner and Group Activities

‘Guess My Word’.

Children ask questions that require a yes/no response to guess the mystery spelling word.

Play ‘Celebrity Head Words’, picture clue words or charades.

‘Celebrity Head Words’:

Magazine hunt for list words.

Choose a number of words to focus on for a week. Children can also search for these in newspapers or any other reading material in the classroom. Children can circle or underline words they find. At the end of the week, children can count their score and share the sentences they found.

Play a game similar to ‘Memory’ using the small words within compound words written on cards.

For example, butter + fly; foot + ball.

For example, What can burn us, but also gives us warmth? (fire)

Children write clues to match their list words. Hold a small competition each day to see who can solve the puzzle first.

For example, Add ‘basket’ to ‘ball’ = basketball. Take ‘er’ from ‘mother’ = moth.

Child uses a headband to hold a card with a list word on their head. They ask questions of the class which can only be answered yes or no. For example, Does the word end in ‘t’?

Children write quiz questions for list words, and give them to a friend to solve. A ‘quiz night’ could also be held using multiple lists.

Also refer to pages 28 – 30 for photocopiable spelling games.

C hildren with S pecial N eeds The spelling activities in My Spelling Workbook can be modified or added to for children with special needs. Some additional suggestions are included below for children with learning difficulties. The worksheet on page 26 is designed for children who fall into this category. Children in need of extension will benefit from many of the suggestions included in the Additional Activities pages of this book. Page 27 also contains an opportunity for spelling extension. Strategies for Children with Learning Difficulties Strategy

Examples

Encourage children to ‘have a go’ and take risks with approximate spelling.

For example, using ‘have a go’ pads or spelling journals for children to try out their spelling when writing stories etc.

Encourage as much reading as possible.

Include different sources of print around the classroom for children to find correct spelling. For example, opposites, colours, favourite sayings, days of the week.

Break each spelling list into shorter lists based on similar spelling patterns.

For example, these list words could be broken up as follows: brake, shake, snake; base, case, chase; plate, mate, hate.

Longer words can be ‘chunked’ (broken into chunks) to assist spelling, rather than conventional syllables.

Emphasise spelling rules.

Encourage children to look at difficult words, focus on the problem part, close their eyes, and then write it.

Write list words on graph paper, cut out the letters, and then build the word from the cutout letters.

Sa

m

pl

e

in

g

For example, cent i pede, el ec tric, in vent ing. Children should be encouraged to choose how to chunk the words themselves, so as to suit each child’s preferred learning style.

ew

For example, magic ‘e’, ‘i’ before ‘e’ except after ‘c’.

Vi

For example, the problem part of night might be ’igh’.

c

a

t

h

c

Write the list words, leaving out some letters. Complete the words the next day.

For example, c

Find words that rhyme with the list words. Underline them if they are spelt the same.

For example, goat: note, boat, wrote, float.

Prepare a cloze passage, deleting list words. Children select the correct word to go in the correct space.

For example, ‘dinosaurs’ and ‘plants’ might fit into: Many ate .

Use sentence frames to develop a spelling vocabulary of list words.

For example: We took plates to the picnic. We took sandwiches to the picnic.

‘Word Bingo’ Children copy words on bingo cards, checking their spelling, then cover words with counters on their cards if the word is called.

Use games like word bingo and word quizzes.

pl

e

‘Word Quizzes’ Using a word list, children write the correct word. For example, Write the word ending in ‘ade’; Write the word with ‘ire’ in the middle. Make new words by writing letters in front of a sound.

For example, ‘ine’ could be added to with ‘v’, ‘tw’, ‘f ’, ‘m’, ‘n’, etc.

Make alphabet books to use as personal dictionaries.

Children write any difficult words they have found under each letter.

Play snap with compound word parts, prefixes and suffixes.

For example, ‘foot’ matches with ‘ball’; ‘tele-’ matches with ‘phone’; ‘govern’ matches with ‘ment’.

Use list words to make spelling ladders, with each word starting with the letter which ends the word before.

For example:

Decorate or illustrate list words.

Write list words using string or pipe cleaners.

Children can make each letter, or just the word shape.

Children can draw pictures and ask other children to guess which word they have drawn; or simply make words into patterns.

Use magnetic letters to form words from memory on a board.

l

Write list words in sand or salt.

Children could also trace words on a desk or sandpaper. Discussing whether word shapes are ‘tall’ or ‘small’ could follow.

Use list words to build other words.

For example, using the word ‘are’: b , c ,
