The programme was developed in partnership with the Dyslexia Association of Ireland. It was made to equip students with clever methods, mental strategies, essential skills, problem-solving techniques, and an abundance of confidence to work out the differences between common, every day, confusing words.
The programme is extremely adaptable and flexible and has become an essential resource for educators with students in senior primary, post-primary, adult literacy, resource and learning support, EFL and indeed anyone who has spelling difficulties or dyslexic tendencies. Not only teachers love this programme, but students do as well. Through fun and games, they learn, easily, how to disentangle these mysterious, complex words.
The programme covers over 256 commonly confused words in 16 units of 16 words. Each 16-word unit is colour-coded and is accompanied by an A2 size laminated Visual Word Card (poster). Each word unit consists of a bingo game, a flashcard game, some helpful hints, an anagram game, a cloze procedure, a crossword, a word search, a word spiral, acrostic activity, and a record-keeping template and a revision section. All of which provide repetition and reinforcement for all confusing words. Some examples of words that are covered include their/there/they’re; to/two/too; canvas/canvass; mayor/mare; piece/peace and so many more.
