Teaching Strategies
   use spelling strategies based on knowledge of sound-symbol relationships and
    standard letter patterns e.g. single consonant sounds, two-letter consonant sounds

   use knowledge about words structures
          o   attempt to use patterns in smaller (base) words to spell longer words
          o   attempt to use –ing and –ed as verb word endings (tense endings) to spell words
          o   attempt to use – s and –es as plural endings
          o   hear syllables in words and use this knowledge when attempting to spell unknown words

   identify the link between spelling and word meanings
          o discuss changes to pronunciation of some words when adding plural endings e.g. plural ‘s’
            can sound differently but is written in the same way in words like ‘cats’ (‘soft ‘s’ sound) and
            ‘cars’ (‘z’ sound)
          o discuss changes to pronunciation of some words when tense endings e.g. ‘ed’ can sound
            differently at the end of ‘played’ (‘ed’ sound) and hopped (sounds like ‘t’)
          o discuss changes to words from singular to plural forms e.g. ‘man’ to ‘men’ , ‘child’ to
          o discuss words that alter when tense is changed e.g. ‘ride’ to ‘rode’, ‘go’ to we
          o discuss words that sound the same but are spelt differently (homonyms) e.g. see and sea;
            there and their; road and rode
          o discuss words that have a shared meaning component e.g. bake, baker, baking, bakery

   use a range of strategies to learn to spell words
          o   look at words to see familiar parts
          o   recognise ‘tricky’ parts to spelling patterns e.g. how and house
          o   identify familiar parts of words e.g. base words, familiar spelling patterns,
          o   say words and listen to sounds in words
          o   clap the word identifying syllables
          o   picture the word in the head
          o   try writing the word using to see what it looks like

   use a range of strategies when writing
          o   use familiar sounds in words
          o   use knowledge of simple base words
          o   experiment with tense and plural endings
          o   use easily accessible references to locate and copy words

   use a range of strategies to proof read and correct errors
          o identify possible spelling errors (eg. circling or underling doubtful words)
          o use a variety of references to find unknown words accurately for own writing tasks e.g. word
              lists, charts, books recently read, personal dictionaries, picture dictionaries
          o seek assistance to proof read and correct spelling
     discuss spelling errors with peers and familiar adults
