33 Ways to Help with Spelling equips teachers and teaching assistants with a
wide range of practical resources to help children who are having difficulties
learning the basic skills of spelling.
Offering a range of activities and games to engage children and encourage
motivation in the classroom, this essential classroom companion provides
ready-to-use material that doesn’t need lengthy forward preparation. Activities

have clear, concise and pedagogically sound reasons for the activity
include extension activity where appropriate to challenge pupils.
Aimed mainly at primary pupils, secondary teachers will also find this book
invaluable to use with pupils who are falling behind. The series facilitates
good inclusive provision and is a resource from which useful ideas and
materials can be taken without having to plough through chapters of theory and
