What is Spellings for Me?
In Scoil Chlíodhna, we are addressing the teaching of spelling as part of our School Self Evaluation. We have worked hard over the past two years to embrace the latest proven methods for the teaching of spellings. We are delighted that these methods are now so popular in progressive schools in Ireland that two teachers in Dublin have created a great resource to support this method of teaching spelling.
This programme is essentially a tailor-made spelling programme. Your child’s spellings will be solely based on the words that they do not know how to spell, working at their own level. No two children will have the same spellings, as no two children are the same.
If you would like to see your child’s progress, you can log in to their profile here. Here you will see:
- What level your child is on by seeing how many yellow ticks he/she has.
- How many words he/she already knew how to spell by looking at the ‘Certificates’ section.
- How many words they have ‘mastered’.
Mastered words are words that the child has spelled wrong but has since learned them and spelled them correctly on the online test. You can view how many mastered words he/she has in the ‘Certificates’ section. Children can be retested again and again on these words to make sure they really know them. Your child will earn certificates, which are also available on their profile. This is a great way to celebrate their achievements at their own level.
