This was designed to be used with a group of dyslexic learners but would be applicable for any learners with spelling difficulties.

I have used this by separating the group into small groups or pairs and then giving each group a different strategy to try with one of the words from the word list (two are provided – one for E2-E3, one for L1-2) or a word of their own that they want to spell.

Wonderful visual aid to help learners remember how to proof read their work. Page one would make a great poster. Page 2 explains the process: start at the city of meaning and move across the land until you get to the city of Spelling!

A great help sheet for dyslexic learners who have difficulty remembering the difference between b and d. Tip: for some learners it may be best to teach just one strategy. For example, if they are left-handed show them the left-handed ‘thumbs up’ only.
