Ideas for Spelling
"Ideas for Spelling" is a highly practical book, providing a rationale for the teaching of spelling based on the nature of the English language and the natural development of children's spelling ability. Spelling is dealt with in the context of writing-not just writing as an isolated area of the language arts, but writing in all areas of the curriculum.
