A resource with web links to over 150 pages of spelling worksheets and advice from an experienced English teacher and examiner. Topics include syllables, prefixes, suffixes, plurals, consonant blends, apostrophes, vowels, magic e, word games, quizzes, interactive hangman, word searches, crossword puzzles. I would very much welcome feedback. There was a problem with the link to the site at the end of June 2014, hence the three negative comments about being redirected to a financial site. This has since been fixed.
