If your child enjoys reading, this can help them to become confident at spelling.  At Acorn we are keen to encourage our children to use our 4 step approach to learning spellings.

All children should have a copy of this glued into their homework books.  It is particularly important for children who have a difficulty with spelling to follow this approach as only by using a multi-sensory approach like this will they be enabled to overcome their difficulties.  They need this extra practice to enable the learning of spellings to be retained in both the short-term and long-term memory.

Spelling lists used in Acorn are available for download here.
