About SpellIt South Africa
Since 2010, Spell It South Africa has already impacted over 400,000 learners, teachers and community members through its programs.
Spell It’s key focus is on:
- Educator training and capacity building
- Spelling coaching and tracking of literacy skills levels at grade 4 level
- Spelling Bee competitions
International research confirms that learners need to be able to read and spell at grade 4 level in order to be assured of successful schooling. Grade 4 is the year learners move from ‘Learning to Read’ to ‘Reading to Learn’. Failure to achieve a grade 4 reading level has been shown to have direct correlation with not progressing past the senior phase at high school.
