My Spelling Workbook

Develop a class of independent spellers

My Spelling Workbook uses a multi-sensory approach to spelling using ‘look, say, trace, cover, write, check’. The series promotes independent learning of spelling in context and features a proven metacognitive approach to spelling, whereby pupils are taught how to approach learning different spelling strategies whilst incorporating their own individual learning style.

What is ‘look, say, trace, cover, write, check’?

The ‘look, say, trace, cover, write, check’ strategy is a spelling strategy taught to children in schools. The My Spelling Workbook encourages this strategy by having the child:

  1. Look at the word
  2. Speak the word out loud
  3. Trace the word out in the workbook
  4. Cover the word with their hand or paper
  5. Then write the word themselves
  6. Check to see if it’s spelt correctly.

This method allows children to take an active multi-sensory approach to their own learning.
