Spelling Variation Placemats

Learning the spelling variations or ways that speech sounds are spelled using various different letter patterns can be very tricky for children, especially with the hickle-de-pickle-dee nature of our English spelling that has pretty much beg borrowed and stolen from so many written languages to create what we have today. This can be a jungle of vines or spaghetti soup for kids with learning disabilities to decipher to learn to spell.

Give the kids the breaky tablemat, set the timer and see how many words they can get correct on the Phonic All Star Spelling Variation placemats whilst they learn their spelling skills.

The Phonic All Star level 2-Spelling Variation support cards are an essential to sit on the students desk and guide them through all the guessing to limit their choices to a set of letter (grapheme) patterns.

Wouldn’t it be great if we got a word indicated as wrong on a test (eg. def ) and we then immediately knew that there was only one other way of spelling that vowel (ea as in “deaf”) so it increased our chances of being correct next time and actually learning and retaining that correct spelling.

Well the Phonic All Star Cards can help with that!

Use the Phonic All Star Level 2 Flashcards to be a tool on your child’s desk when doing homework or class activities to cue them to the spelling choice of speech sounds.

However, we just don’t stop there. We recognise that it is important to be able to sound out words-blend these-and decode a word using the sound processor (phonological processing skills) but did you know that the word needs to be seen and remembered by the visual sketch pad memory¬†part of our brain to be consolidated as sight-word files that pop up in our brain later as our PROOF READING capabilities.

That’s where our SPELLING VARIATION POSTERS come alive and not only give the kids an exciting story about the adventures of the Phonic All Star characters but provide a fantastic spelling activity that sorts out their close spelling of words that share the same speech sound vowel

That is…

Short vowel “e” as in “egg” making “e” and “ea

Long vowel “ar” as in “park” making “ar” and “a” as in “bath”.

The kids get to complete a breaky tablemat whilst you get to get on with the cooking. Perfect for the busy parents to fit in therapy among the activities of the day.
