I recently completed the SMART Spelling video course online, and can highly recommend it. I found it very user friendly and easy to follow. It is a great program and something I have already started implementing into my classroom. Michelle is so relatable, and her program really makes sense! It was great to be able to make comments as ask questions after each video and I also found it helpful to re-watch the concepts I wasn’t too sure about. Thanks Michelle.

Thank you Michelle. This has been fascinating. I have always loved language and teaching reading and spelling, but I have learnt lots of new strategies through your videos. I am going to have such fun teaching my students using these new strategies.

SMART Foundation is specifically for teachers of foundation classes - the first year of school. This complements the SMART Spelling course and goes further into specific for beginners.
It is video training presented by Michelle Hutchison that is supported by printable notes and you also get digital downloads that contain everything you need to use this approach straight away!
