Spelling for Life is a highly acclaimed, internationally recognised teaching and learning program, suitable for teachers of middle primary children. Those in special education, speech pathology, homeschooling and educational psychology are often keen participants too.

This face to face course is intended to deliver 5.5 hours of high quality professional development on the structure of the English writing system, going from single letters to morphemes in a sequence of explicit lessons.

Participants will:

  • receive a re-useable book of worksheets for direct classroom application
  • receive a printed manual
  • receive a suggested spelling and handwriting scope and sequence from F-6
  • receive a certificate of completion for 5.5 hours of PD
  • have the opportunity to purchase discounted copies of Lyn Stone’s books

Course content:

3 modules containing information on:

  • Orthographic mapping
  • Extended code instruction
  • English spelling rules and conventions
  • Etymology
  • Morphology
  • High impact spelling practice that goes beyond weekly lists and tests

One thing to note:

Due to this being a one-day event, topics are carefully chosen with time constraints in mind. This is not a carbon copy of the online course, which, due to its self-paced nature, contains more topics and information. Both are good to do.


Please consider your purchase of this ticket very carefully. As we all know, there are circumstances during this pandemic that could change our travel plans beyond our ability to control them. Due to spacing regulations, we have to place limits on how many people can attend our events and we have to hire larger venues. This pushes up the price of tickets, unfortunately.

All sales are final. If COVID prevents us from travelling, two things will happen:

  1. We will offer you a place in a future face to face workshop.
  2. Should this not be suitable, we will convert your purchase to a credit voucher, with which you can buy any courses and materials on our website. We do not stock our own books, so your credit will not apply to those.
