The purpose of Spelling Analysis is to strengthen reading and spelling fluency by guiding students as they apply the phonograms and spelling rules in specific words and helping them analyze why those words are spelled the way they are.
When teaching spelling analysis with younger students using our Foundations curriculum, the focus is on developing reading skills. To learn more, see The purpose of Foundations spelling lists.
The purpose of spelling analysis in our Essentials curriculum is similar to that in Foundations; however, there is an additional focus on understanding how and why words are spelled the way they are in order to build spelling mastery.
To learn more about spelling analysis and how to use it in our curriculum or to help strengthen any student's reading and spelling skills, see our Free Spelling Analysis Tutorial or check out one of our Spelling Analysis Mini Courses.
