ASSESSMENT OF SPELLING AS PART OF READING

Reading and Spelling both depend on knowing that print is a code for speech. Both require knowledge of the code.

letters stand for sounds (phonics)
patterns of letters stand for sounds: igh, ph
the rime part of syllables determines sounds (orthography): rag vs rage, kit vs kite, rig vs right


Word Reading Fluency facilitates Spelling

  • efficient recognition of letter patterns and the sounds they make
  • efficient recognition of words that appear frequently
