Spelling Strategies

Teachers here at St Kevin’s are working to improve our students’ spelling in context skills! Throughout the year, teachers have contributed to a “Spelling Strategies” wall in the staff room. They have also shared strategies and resources that students are responding to at staff meetings.

Yesterday, every teacher from Prep to Year 6 demonstrated that we are all lifelong learners and on this journey together. Our teachers participated in peer observations with a specific focus on sharing strategies to improve spelling in context. Then at the staff meeting, teachers provided feedback on the lessons and investigated how these strategies can be differentiated to meet the needs of students in other year levels.  The highlight of the day for many included seeing students in other year levels being able to articulate their learning and using their inquisitiveness and communication skills when justifying their thinking or explaining the task that was being carried out. Requests are already coming in for more opportunities!
