Understanding how words are related through MEANING and SPELLING


Building 'word webs' through a collaborative approach.

Using a collaborative strategy, Round Table Word Websstudents will develop an understanding of the importance of connecting SPELLING with MEANING, 
the essence of the English spelling system. 

The students will have an opportunity to build a number of different word webs, by collecting words that all have a common base. This activity will help students to understand how and why words are related in 'word families' and how this essential knowledge demonstrates the key to the spelling.
