Use Your Eyes

This book aims to help students improve their visual skills as an aid to better spelling. It is divided into two parts: part one focuses on observation and memory; part two focuses on spelling. Most of the puzzles are self  explanatory and simple. Kim’s game will improve memory and can be adapted using realia in class. The puzzles are short, entertaining and can be used as a warm up or as an activity change during the lesson.
