Ww/E3.2

Use their developing knowledge of sound-symbol relationships and phonological patterns to help spell a greater range of words and longer words, as appropriate for the needs of the learner (a) Understand that knowing spelling patterns (e.g. common letter strings, visual patterns, analogies) reduces the chance of random errors (b) Understand that there is not always a strict sound-symbol association in spelling, e.g. silent letters (c) Understand how segmenting words into phonemes, and breaking them into syllables (beats) or components (compounds) helps work out spelling

Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

Level: E3, L1, L2, GCSE L1-5

This is a spelling/phonetics resource that could be used as a starter, differentiated activity or filler. Learners colour in the squares where the words have an /f/ sound, these words are hidden with words that are ‘gh’ but aren’t pronounced /f/. When completed the grid shows a smiley face. There are a few trap words in here which can be used for dictionary or internet search practice.

Literacy: Ww/E3.2, Wt/E3.4, Wt/L1.6, Ww/L1.1, Functional English - writing

Context: Voluntary & Charity

Level: E3, L1, L2

Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

A resource designed to be used with Abigail Illife’s excellent Plural Spelling rules resource [ see ‘See also’ below].

Learners can practise their proofreading skills and apply the spelling rules. Give learners the first sheet and ask them to highlight the mistakes. As well as spelling mistakes there are capital letters and the US spelling of centre.

Hand out the second sheet on which the mistakes are underlined so that they can mark themselves and check that they have spotted all the mistakes.

Spellings for E3-L2 Functional English

Literacy: Ww/E3.1, Ww/E3.2, Ww/L1.1, Functional English - writing, Ww/L2.1

Resource type: Dictation, Handout or guide

Many of these common spellings used to crop up regularly in the former Level 1 literacy tests. They will also be useful for Level 1 and Level 2 Functional Skills students.

They have been categorised to make learning more manageable for learners, but some spellings will fit into more than one group.

Compound word card match

Context: Catering Food Nutrition, Sport

Resource type: Sort or match cards

Level: E2, E3

This is a resource for teaching compound words to mixed ability groups. There are five different word match activities and two help sheets.

I use the first two activities, sports and food, with E1-2 learners. Depending on their ability you can either give the learners both topics at once or give them one at a time to make the activity easier. For very low level students I’d give the learners one topic at a time and a help sheet.

Level: E2, E3, L1

Resource type: Flash cards, Sort or match cards

Root word family cards are two sets of flash cards that can be used to visualise the concept of root words to entry level and L1 students.

The entry level cards contain a number of root words and their word families, with a picture representation of each word. The level one sheet contains a higher level of vocabulary and the pictures have been removed.

Lesson Ideas

  • The cards could be given to the students to group into word families.
