I've been asked to help a child use their phonic knowledge in their spellings when doing "free writing". The child is in year 2 and has done most Letters and Sounds phase 3 GPCs and a small number of Phase 5GPCs. I haven't seen a sample of their writing yet. Any ideas please how best to go about this? I volunteer one to one. My hesitation is how best to tackle the issue of starting to write in a phonically plausible fashion, but also how best to cope with the fact that the child does not yet have the phonic knowledge of the possible spelling choices. I want to encourage the child to work out phonically plausible spellings but I don't want, unwittingly, to confirm incorrect spellings in the child's mind when we can't as yet together make the correct choice for most sounds (e.g. "ir" "ur" or "er").
