Education Shed announced today that the New Mexico Public Education Department has adopted Spelling Shed as a supplemental resource for grades K-2 Structured Literacy. Aligned to Common Core English Language Arts Standards, Spelling Shed includes online and print resources, engaging learning activities with multiple levels, and provides a personalized learning environment for students.
“Foundation skills and knowledge are essential to student success in literacy,” said Martin Saunders, co-founder and CEO of Education Shed. “As part of a Structured Literacy program, word study and spelling are vital for progression in reading and writing. Spelling Shed makes word study and spelling practice fun for students and the word fluency they gain allows them to unlock their wider literacy potential. We are delighted to provide Structured Literacy supplemental materials to New Mexico schools.”
Spelling Shed has designed a spelling curriculum for grades K-5 that incorporates a phonics-based approach to spelling for early years, along with a structured approach for students in grades 2-5. Spelling Shed provides weekly word lists for grades K-5 that focus on specific letter and sound patterns including digraphs, trigraphs, prefixes, suffixes, homophones and more. We also provide teachers with the ability to create their own word lists.
Spelling Shed content is available in online, mobile and printable formats, thus providing a flexible learning resource to meet the needs of today’s educators. Spelling Shed resources can be used for one-to-one, small-group and whole-class instruction.
