Spelling forms the basis for languages and literacy.  The “Spelling Spree” and “Spelpret” programs developed by CAIROO focuses not only on the correct spelling of words but also addresses plurals, diminutives, syllables, etc. to enable the child in the foundation phase to build a vocabulary and associate words and their meanings.  

Some of the topics covered are:

  • Sound recognition
  • Word recognition
  • Word construction
  • Opening, closing and middle sounds
  • Memory word construction
  • Syllables
  • Diminutives
  • Plurals
  • Masculine/Feminine form
  • Intensive form
  • Degrees of comparisons
  • Abbreviations
