Primary spelling — 2 Comments

  1. I have a vague recollection of the spellings Ian, and I do remember the ‘word perfect’ book…… My youngest lad James (10) gets 10 words to learn on a Thursday for the following Wednesday….

  2. Memorising spellings is probably the worst possible way to learn. What would be wrong with teaching kids the underlying principles of word-construction.

    Never mind lists. Show them how it works.

    As my mother used to say, give a child a list and he’ll spell for a day. Give him a fishing rod and he’ll go away for weeks.

    Something like that anyway.
