    How to Dazzle at Spelling is structured resource for teaching pupils to understand and commit sounds, letter strings and high frequency words to memory. The rules of spelling are often difficult for pupils to assimilate because there are so many exceptions. Therefore rules require reinforcement many times before they are understood. The activities in this book are designed to develop the pupils' visual and aural discrimination, recognition and memory. Pupils will learn that if they visualize the words, as well as sound them out, they have a better chance of spelling them correctly.
