A book that makes you wish Alais Winton was your own personal teacher. She draws ideas from the energy and creativity of the children she works with, and provides us with simple, clever, inspiring ways to improve spelling, handwriting, maths and English.
I found this book easy to read. I think that using plasticine and big letters to learn spellings can help more than writing on a piece of paper. I think this because learning this way is visual and you can use your hands to make the word.
I like how the book tells you how to do the games. I don't like to learn spellings normally, sitting down and writing them over and over again. I like to have more fun when I'm learning.
Personally I think this book is brilliant! Mainly because the activities in this book are fun and can help you remember certain things. It covers how you can learn in a new creative way and it can help your confidence, dramatically.
We all have different styles of learning and learn at different rates. Being dyslexic emphasizes this. Alais has tutored our son George for the last 18 months and used these methods successfully to capture his great imagination. He is now learning with confidence and improving as a result. Alais understands what being dyslexic means and is able to adapt teaching techniques to get proven results.
