We are very excited to be working with Hampshire Educational Psychologists to run The Multi-Sensory Spelling Program. Yesterday we started with a talk about how children learn and that using all their senses makes learning more effective. We then put this theory to the test by using a wide range of fun strategies to learn our spellings.
Forming letters in the word with bendy sticks.
Using Hangman, word searches and spelling pyramids.
Rainbow writing, Roll a Rainbow and Lego/Duplo spelling.
Having fun, learning together and sharing successes.
Getting messy-writing words in shaving foam, flour, glitter and gloop.
The children will continue to use these strategies to learn their spellings at home and see which work best for them.
