Presenter: Fiona Sullivan, SPELD SA Literacy Coach & Trainer
Session 3: Jolly Grammar – Spelling Focus
Pre-requisite: Session 1 – Introducing Jolly Phonics
Spelling should be an exercise in logic, problem solving and discovering patterns rather than merely memorising weekly spelling lists. Students should be active participants provided with opportunities to discover patterns, form generalisations and knowledge that can be transferred to spell a range of words.
The training session will examine:
A synthetic phonics approach to teaching reading and spelling
Consonants, vowels, alternative spellings of the vowel sounds, syllables, schwa, prefixes, suffixes, base words and word origins
Spelling principles to support student understanding
The role of spelling lists and dictation
Practical activities and resources to compliment the spelling program
Suitable for teachers, SSOs, tutors, pre-service teachers and parents.
Lunch is included if attending both sessions.
