A series of frequently misspelled words appear on the screen and the animated presenter describes how to use mnemonics and visual cues to help remember how to spell them. The words include necessary, occasion and some easily confused homophones. The animation emphasises the visual nature of some of the mnemonics, necessary sprouts a collar and two sleeves for example.
Use when through marking and feedback you have identified key spellings that students need to learn. Watch the clip, indicate to students their own key spellings (limit to 3 or 4) and ask them to create mnemonics to help them remember the correct spellings of these words. Share/display for the whole class to use.
