Support students in spelling mastery through orthography, morphology, and etymology.

student using worksheet

Lessons are designed for grades two to four and have been structured for differentiation and include:

  • teacher resources
  • two word lists
  • natural progression from UFLI
  • explicit instruction in grapheme-to-phoneme correspondence
  • morphology matrices
  • “heart words” explained…

English spelling makes sense!

Video and audio spelling resources

These teacher resources are integral to using Spelliosity. This lesson demonstrates how we use orthography and morphology to spell <swapped>. We focus on <wa>, the doubling sufixing convention, and understanding suffix <-ed> as a meaningful unit (morpheme) and not just “sounds” (phonemes). Spelliosity in action!

Spelling Scope and Sequence

Our bundles have been released in an order that mirrors a practical Scope and Sequence; however, they have been designed for flexible usage and can be taught in any order.

Spelliosity aligns with UFLI

Spelliosity is an ideal transition for students who have completed UFLI lessons. UFLI and Spelliosity are both comprehensive guides that provide teachers with explicit instruction. Spelliosity is an excellent next step to UFLI’s explicit and systematic phonics program, as it supports spelling mastery through orthography, morphology, and etymology. Teachers will find this resource extends their students' understanding of our spelling system, enhancing their reading and spelling.

A testimonial from Ms. D – Grade 1/2 teacher:
"I'm excited to share the positive impact Spelliosity has had in my grade 1/2 classroom. My grade 3 and 4 colleagues also use it and find it valuable. Serving as a natural progression from my UFLI phonics instruction, Spelliosity has seamlessly integrated into my program for students reading at and above grade level. The two word lists enable me to differentiate instruction with ease. The teacher guides have provided invaluable insights, enhancing my understanding of orthography and morphology. If you want to strengthen reading and spelling skills in your classroom, I highly recommend incorporating Spelliosity into your daily practice."

  • LOVE these packages!

    These packages are great for teachers who are learning all about structured word inquiry/morphology/structured literacy but also helpful for those well on their way! I use them in class and for tutoring.

    The links and videos are very helpful if you need a visual!

  • Thank you Spelliosity

    I've noticed a big improvement in my Grade 4’s grasp of spelling patterns and morphology.

    What really sets Spelliosity apart is your ability to simplify complex concepts without sacrificing depth. The lessons strike the perfect balance, providing a solid understanding of orthography and morphology while keeping my students engaged.

    I'm grateful for this fantastic resource!

  • Relevant, accessible and pedagogically aligned for students with hearing differences.

    I am a teacher of Students Who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing. This resource is relevant, accessible, and pedagogically aligned with teaching students with hearing differences. Morphological understanding is foundational to developing Language skills for students with hearing differences, and it benefits all students. The teacher guides are the icing on the cake, creating entry points and providing structure for lessons.
