When we teach with a traditional spelling curriculum, we are teaching to the text. We are following a pre-planned curriculum that’s one size fits all and doesn’t take into consideration the individual needs of the each speller.
When we teach with a differentiated spelling curriculum we take into consideration each individual spellers’ learning needs. We teach students to apply spelling patterns to words and use those spelling skills in all subjects including reading, writing, language, social studies, science, and beyond.
With these lessons and the framework for each week of learning, you will find this spelling instruction different in that it:
- Focuses on spelling and word work skills that can be applied to countless words, rather than memorizing a set of specific words.
- Allows for students to create their own individual spelling lists, based on their specific learning needs. (Differentiated Instruction)
- Integrates spelling skills into all parts of the students’ day, including both the reading and writing workshops
- Teaches students to notice spelling patterns and how those patterns work in words. This way, once students understand a spelling pattern and how it works, they can apply that pattern to all words, not just the few on their weekly spelling list.
- Helps students understand why spelling matters.
- Encourages learning through working with partners and in small groups.
- Empowers students to be in charge of their own learning. By giving them the power to choose their own spelling words, it makes learning so much more meaningful.
- When learning becomes meaningful, students tend to work a whole lot harder to reach their highest potential!
- Teaches students to be interdependent and accountable for each other’s learning.
I hope you enjoy your free week of Interactive Spelling!
