Students’ linguistic transitions in spelling between Grades 3 and 6

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Spelling is one of the essential mechanics of the written language. It is the visible representation of

    word-level language using written symbols in conventional sequences (orthography) that represent speech

    sounds (phonology) and word parts that signal meaning and grammar (morphology)? (Garcia, Abbott, &

    Berninger, 2010, p. 63). Learning to spell is critical to student?s literacy development (Graham & Santangelo,

    2014). Research has shown that if secretarial skills (Mackenzie, Scull, & Munsie, 2013) such as spelling are

    efficient, greater capacity in working memory becomes available for other important writing processes such as

    vocabulary selection, planning and revising (Graham, Harris, & Chorzempa, 2002; Puranik & AlOtaiba,

    2012).
