You Can Spell Book 1 will help children learn to spell 100 of the most commonly used words in the English language the words that make up about half of everything written.
It contains fun activities that introduce these words, and it shows children how to spell, literally from the word go! (With a little help from teacher and parents.)
The You Can Spell series has been a popular resource in New Zealand schools since the early 1990s. It has now been revised, with new activities, new lists (including, for example, 'digital') and a bright new presentation but it is still based on original research, a mastery learning programme and the 3700 most frequently used words in English (the words that make up more than 95% of all writing).
