How do learners get better at spelling?

This video demonstrates a very practical activity that can be done with a range of different writing systems to give deliberate attention to spelling. One of the key messages to learn from the 4 Strands is that we learn through message focused learning. That means that we shouldn’t necessarily spend too much time on focusing on spelling. Most of our work with the three message focused strands  will provide lots us with plenty of information and reinforcement with spelling. Watch the video for a more concise overview and how to use the activity at the end.
