A Video of Deep Understanding

Often I am asked...
Is this just about spelling? 
How is this possible with young children?

This VIDEO describes my response, perfectly!

These two curious six year old orthographers, who demonstrate 
such delight and wonder, whilst investigating their significant words,  
embody what is, and can be, possible when studying orthography with young children.

"Nothing motivates learning more than understanding."

Studying orthography encompasses:
  • a quest for knowledge and understanding
  • thoughtful, scholarly questions
  • an ongoing learning journey
  • a thirst for more
  • wonder and curiosity
