Spelling Worksheets, a book of A4 photocopy masters, contains 43 sheets of exercises and information on a range of spelling problems. Most of the sheets are in the same format. Each starts with a short explanatory note about the spelling or topic under consideration, continues with a set of exercises and, in most cases, ends with writing tasks based on the spellings covered. Some topics take a single page; others extend to two or more pages.
Spelling Worksheets encourages students to enjoy words, to think about the patterns and quirks in the way they are spelt and to devise ways of remembering spellings they need to know. Emphasis is placed on making connections between words encountered in the context of daily life (e.g. in shops; at work; in advertisements; on street signs) and other words with similar spellings.
Among the many topics covered are: sounds & their spellings; syllables; roots/prefixes/suffixes; proof reading; plurals; using your name & address; how to use a dictionary. A detailed contents list, a glossary of spelling terminology and titles of some useful reference books are included.
