As you know, the difficulties of those who struggle with spelling fascinates me and motivates my teaching, my camps and now my new venture: stationery to help funky spellers, Handy Spelling.
Handy Spelling produces the products I've wanted to give my students for years; stationery they can subtly refer to for help whether it's for the direction of b and d, homophones, high frequency tricky words or grammar terms.
I've been quietly working on these products for several years, testing prototypes on my students and refining exactly what sort of reinforcement is best, now you can try them too. Handyspelling.com opens very soon and I'm extremely proud to say we've already won two industry awards. I'll be uploading regular lessons and sharing spelling strategies and materials via the website, so please join us. In the meantime, camp will take a break, but we'll be back with more fun and games towards the end of the summer. Happy spelling everyone, Sally
