Spelling and reading build and rely on the same mental representation of a word. Knowing the spelling of a word makes the representation of it sturdy and accessible for fluent reading Catherine Snow
The carefully selected word lists and engaging activities provide opportunities to incorporate phonics and meaning to strengthen spelling skills and build vocabulary acquisition.
Many researchers, including Gentry (2019) and Moats (2019), agree that spelling is foundational for reading and that good spellers build strong readers. Spelling not only supports reading, but it also aids in the process of orthographic mapping, and vocabulary acquisition. Explicit spelling instruction might be the crucial missing component to success in reading, according to recent cognitive science studies.
Each explicit and systematic Spelling Shed lesson is designed to be easy to use and highly effective. The lessons incorporate phonics, morphology, and etymology elements and include a variety of instruction and activities that engage and challenge students while they learn. They are created to be flexible to fit within the variable timetables that schools have.
Our system gives access to over a million word lists, including our official lists and custom made lists.
Spelling Shed is made by teachers, for teachers and was developed in the founder's classroom. We have built a suite of tools to enable teachers and schools to manage students' data including reporting on assessment. Spelling Shed tracks student game plays along with their responses. Teachers can monitor weekly activity in order to advance or remediate as needed.
Our platform enables learning to happen anywhere and everywhere giving educators the peace of mind that students can learn and get practice unhindered.
Our administration tools also allow districts to manage school data centrally.
