What Schools Say
Teachers across Ireland have been praising Tell and Spell and calling it a unique way to test english vocabulary and improve spelling ability.
Mr. Daly - Principal of Glasheen Boys’ National School, Cork.
'As a teacher who was involved in the original Tell & Spell pilot exercise in 1995, my experience is that it achieves its goals - improve spelling ability and build vocabulary. By selecting everyday words and uncommon words, and different levels of difficulty, the new CDs cater for all ability levels within the classroom. The Tell&Spell CDS are a great success in my school both with teachers and pupils.’
Mr. Landers – Teacher, Scoil Eoin Boys’ National School, Cork.
‘I have used the Tell & Spell wordcards for 15 years.The new CDs are so easy to use and questions can be given verbally or with the use of the whiteboard which helps the weaker children. Throughout the year my 3rd class pupils have improved their grammar skills, spellings and word knowledge.'
Mr. O'Cathasaigh – Principal, Gaelscoil Uí Ríordáin, Cork.
'Tell & Spell presents pupils with challenges which they respond to with great spirit. Our 6th class pupils practise amongst themselves and it gives them an opportunity to attempt the spelling of familiar and unfamiliar words.'
Mr. Harrington – Assistant Principal, Scoil Barra National School, Cork.
‘The new Tell & Spell CDs are ideal for quick vocabulary work. Pupils engage with enthusiasm and learn new vocabulary and spellings without realizing it.'
