The Spelling Rules Program: Ref 120920
The Spelling Rules Program can be used with children as young as six, right up to adults who do not feel confident with spelling. In fact, it is an excellent way to provide support to anyone who struggles with spelling.
Every participant will be provided their own Spelling Case for use during the workshop (a case that has magnetic letters, whiteboards, marker, and eraser). It is designed for a teacher/leader to use with a large group of students, or just with one person. It is also possible for adults to use the program to teach themselves how to use spelling rules. These will be available for purchase during the workshop.
For class teachers, spec. ed teachers & SSOs
