Message to Parents - With Time for Spelling, Book 6, most children should not need help with reading or the explanation of instructions. As a parent you are asked to support your child’s learning but resist the temptation to provide answers. By all means, read a word for your child if necessary and then support him/her to gain a better knowledge about the word and its meaning. This reassures the child and enables one to become a more independent learner. As the child works through the book your encouragement may be all that is needed.
Regular review of spelling activities and application of words in context helps your child develop skills which will assist in the learning process and improve confidence over time. A confident and skilled learner will enjoy school.
Praise your child at all times because you are the ideal support person in your child’s life. Use this book together to make the learning process more meaningful for both of you.
Time for Spelling, Book 6 is designed as a fun book for home use. Enjoy the journey!
