How to get your child spelling early
First Spelling Words introduces young children from 3 to 5 years to English language skills. Children can recognise pictures of familiar objects.The word is spelt for them so they begin to understand phonics and letter sounds. They start with three letter words and progress to four and five letter words and can move on to start spelling themselves.A Certificate is generated if they spell all words on one section correctly. Help your child learn the language.
