Young children start pondering about and understanding the printed material long before they start school. They try to replicate written material and learn its meanings. As soon as a child comes into this world, they start noticing the world around them.
They tend to identify patterns and copy what they see. Children learn that symbols have meanings, and when they start working on colouring books, they start recognizing, exploring and identifying lines, patterns, and shapes.
With growing age, younger children start experimenting with words and letters, including the letters in their own name. This experimental writing lays the foundation for complex letter and word identification. Both pre-school and school experiences play a vital role in understanding how the words work. Teachers are fundamental in assisting children in this discovery process.
Teachers help children discover the language basics, assist children in processing written sentences, and teach them more words about the reading and writing process. Teachers guide the students along the incredible journey of discovering how the English language developed over time, how words are spelled, and the basics of spelling words.
Students start to gain the knowledge of sounds and letters; ultimately, they develop a reservoir of words that are used commonly during talking and in written manuscripts. These words are called sight words. Create a word wall in the classroom and display these words to help children learn these words and their meanings. Visualizing is just one of the techniques that help teachers to utilize pictures and images to teach more words to kids.
It helps the budding writers to recognize important words and serves as a positive reinforcement for spelling and memorization of words.
The Australian Curriculum gives teachers the liberty to use inquisitive techniques to help students learn how to spell words. Australian Curriculum at its heart promotes fun and enjoyment in learning as it's proven that learning is enhanced when students have fun learning. Great writers have a plethora of tricks up their sleeves when it comes to using new words in their writings. Their experience and understanding of words afford them the freedom of experimenting with words.
Spelling practice and dictations are only good to memorize the spelling of words. These techniques fail to impart the knowledge of how words actually work. Such students can cram the sequence of alphabets creating words but will fail to understand the essence of how to spell words.
The ultimate challenge for teachers is to nurture a risk-taking classroom environment in which students love experimenting with words. This is achievable by utilizing different strategies. These strategies can make students brave enough to use any word they want in their writings.
Understanding the pattern of words, the connection between sounds and letters serves as the foundation of spelling words effectively. The capacity to recognize phonetic symbols, grammatical forms, and the meaning of affixes, as well as connections between new and established words, also serves as a building block. The role of a teacher is to nurture a classroom environment in which students stay actively attracted towards learning and stay ambitious about new learning opportunities.
