  • This follow up book by Lidia Stanton is a  collection of witty and easy to remember visual hints (mnemonics) to help the child recall tricky spellings, including exceptions and homophones. 264 high- and medium-frequency words that appear in KS1 and KS2 curricula are associated with over 160 creative spelling clues. Ages 5-11. This book is not a structured spelling programme. It does not replace any part of the child's current literacy instruction at school. It complements it to help equip the children with additional ways to remember tricky spellings. It's suitable for children who:
    • prefer to learn by seeing and doing
    • have tried traditional spelling strategies (e.g. Look, Cover, Write, Check, and breaking words into sounds and syllables) but with limited success
    • continue to confuse similar sounding and similar looking words
    • have dyslexia or other specific learning difficulty.
  • This book by Lidia Stanton provides an 'at a glance' breakdown of visual hints for high frequency words introduced in Reception and Year 1. A multi-sensory approach is used, where each word is a story hidden inside a cartoon and has a shape that can be recognised. Colour is used to emphasise the visual impact. This multisensory approach is particularly useful for learners with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia
