Let's Celebrate National Spelling Bee Week and the Spelling Brain!

Thursday, May 28, 2015 2:10:28 PM America/Los_Angeles

This week marks the 88th edition of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, with the championship final to be held in Maryland, tonight, May 28th. The goal of the high profile spelling bee is educational, not only to encourage children to perfect the art of spelling, but also to enlarge their vocabularies and widen their knowledge of the English language. To recognise Spelling Bee Week, at JL headquarters we want to focus our thoughts on spelling, and how our brain learns to spell. What’s going on inside the brains of those spelling bee champions? We’ve previously talked about the reading brain, and the speaking brain, but we realized it was timely to finally talk about the very important spelling brain too!

Today, I want to share with you some of our thoughts on how we can encourage early language development in a more positive and reflective way. How do we best teach the speaking brain in early childhood?
