How Readiwriter Spelling works

Readiwriter Spelling focuses on explicit instruction of phonology, orthography, morphology and etymology to help spell unfamiliar
and to create confident spellers.

We developed this approach to
provide deeper spelling understanding

Efficient spellers do more than just memorise word lists. That’s why Readiwriter Spelling develops your students’ ability to:

Hear and spell units
of sound (phonology)

Identify permissible letter
patterns (orthography)


Manipulate words to change their form.


Understand the origins
of words (etymology)

This knowledge allows us to see patterns and rules in a rich and connected
way and apply this understanding when spelling unfamiliar words.
