Whether you work in a classroom, with small groups, or 1:1, and whether you are new to systematic word study or a seasoned pro, this course will provide you with the WHY and HOW to begin using SPELL-Links Wordtivities with your students to achieve the outcomes you’ve been looking for.
In this webinar, we focus on the framework of SPELL-Links and how to begin using SPELL-Links Wordtivities with your students. We start with a highlight of the main distinguishing features of SPELL-Links instruction—speech-to-print, multi-linguistic, and meta-linguistic— before offering an overview of SPELL-Links Wordtivities itself including its scope and sequence, materials, setting up and using a sound wall, selection of words and word lists, and suggestions for delivering instruction in a classroom, small group or 1:1. From there, you’ll experience the power of SPELL-Links Wordtivities as a word study program for all students through role-playing demonstration of several of its activities.
