Learn to Spell with Stories!

One of the hardest aspects of learning to spell the English language is that sounds in words can be spelled in so many ways. This can lead to stress, confusion and ongoing anxiety, often not helped by endless lists of disconnected and meaningless wordlists.

Written and designed for the child to

1: hear sounds in words

2: know what letters to choose to spell the sounds they hear

We hope you and your students enjoy the stories and easily learn to spell at the same time!
