Course Description

Spell to Write and Read
Spell to Write and Read (SWR) is a program that believes reading naturally flows from spelling comprehension. SWR focus on what’s behind a word’s spelling that causes us to pronounce it a certain way. SWR provides students with spelling strategies and rules to help them decode words they encounter each day. A major component of the SWR program is studying and memorizing the 70 basic phonograms. It is a multi-sensory program that utilizes the senses as tools. SWR has also proven to be very successful for students with learning difficulties (including dyslexia).
Class time will be spent:
  • Students will be taught 10 spelling words in each class period.
  • We will utilize kinesthetic movement to help build memory and retention of words and phonograms.
  • Students will need to bring their spelling log to each class.
