‘Magic Boxes’ is an explicit, structured, sequential and highly effective program designed to take children from the early stages of spelling through to knowledge of English morphology. The program is based on latest research and, as well as being compatible with the Australian Curriculum guidelines for English, is received enthusiastically by both teachers and students. It is suitable for use in early childhood classrooms as a spelling program for all students and as a program to assist students who have learning difficulties throughout the primary school.
This free presentation introduces the ‘Magic Boxes’ program and provides early childhood and primary school teachers with an opportunity to review the materials and ask questions about the program’s development.
Presenters: Sue Lambert and Iola Knight are both experienced literacy teachers. They are passionate about spelling and about improving outcomes for all students – including those who just don’t seem to get it! In 2011 they were given a grant by All Saints’ College that enabled them to publish the successful spelling program they had been developing and trialling over a number of years. The result is ‘Magic Boxes’.
