Teachers love SMART Spelling because it makes sense.


Schools love SMART Spelling because it’s systematic.


As a classroom teacher, I felt very underprepared by my university qualifications to teach spelling. I was thoroughly confused about blends, graphemes and don’t get me started on all the spelling rules!!! 


Well now I know better!

I developed a sensible way to teach spelling.  It’s called ‘The SMART Spelling Approach’.   SMART Spelling is a structured, multi sensory approach that caters for different levels of spelling ability in one class.  Come along to the one day course and learn all about it!


The SMART Spelling manual clearly outlines a Prep – 6 scope and sequence for teaching spelling.  It gives teachers a way to explicitly teach: sound – letter links (The Alphabetic Principle), syllables, the 44 different sounds and their most common spelling patterns.  You get a manual when you come to the training or you can buy the manual here.
