'My spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places.'

Teaching Spelling: A Guide for Teachers and Parents
by Jean Alston

A book for parents and teachers who wish to help children of all ages develop successful techniques in learning to spell.

There are many books on the teaching of spelling. Most provide lists of words, but do not suggest ways in which they should be learnt. Others suggest one way to learn words. In this book, Jean Alston provides a number of strategies, focusing on building confidence. In a simple and uncomplicated manner, she describes why some children have difficulty in grasping the rules of spelling and suggests practical methods of overcoming these difficulties.
