Spelling With Emile
Spelling lists and worksheets are given to students every week. These lists and worksheets can sometimes be the main feature of homework. And let’s be honest, these activities and never met with excitement. Students with good visual memory are more likely to struggle less, with the right amount of practise. However, students who are not that good at visual memory may struggle.
Of course, there are many strategies we can apply to learn these lists: repetition and writing the word down. Yet, if students only memorise these words, and don’t understand them – how can we expect them to keep the information for their future work? Therefore, it is always important to apply different resources for students to fully understand the technique of spelling.

The National Curriculum
As we are all aware, spelling is essential for everyday life. That’s why educators emphasise the development of correct spelling. The word spelling comes up on the national curriculum 102 times, however, there are many approaches teachers make to successfully teach spelling. This may include spelling lists, glossaries, worksheets, and activities as well as techniques such as “Read, Say, Cover, Write and Check”.
