A Creative Approach to Teaching Spelling is packed full of fun and effective multi-sensory games and activities that build phonic skills as a key strategy for spelling. In addition, there are games that develop further strategies to supplement phonic skills. Preceding the games is a summary of major developments in the teaching of spelling over the last forty years. This leads to an analysis of the current research and approaches on which the games are based. With the knowledge, skills and ideas offered, teachers can enhance the growing range of phonic-based spelling programmes currently used within schools, or they can build engaging spelling programmes of their own to meet the specific groups or individual pupils. The games and activities will help to develop and embed children's phonological awareness, phonic knowledge and auditory memory.
