Macquarie Dictionary Publishers, 2016. ISBN 9781925479485
(Age: 8 - 10) Recommended. The extremely popular Network Ten reality show 'The Great Australian Spelling Bee' generated a large following and raised the profile of Spelling and Literacy in Australia. Remarkable young students with a great depth of knowledge about the origin and definition of an unbelievable array of quirky, obscure and Australian words proved their amazing ability. Network Ten and Macquarie Dictionary Publishers have released this workbook for spellers in the Middle Primary years.
The spelling bee image buzzes across the pages, introducing a variety of enjoyable activities including finding a word, shrinking words, 'what am I' definitions and synonym staircase.
This workbook starts with all about me which asks the child to enter their favourite book, languages spoken and favourite word. The activities are straightforward, easy to complete and each begins with a clear set of instructions. A great holiday activity book, there's something there to challenge the young spellers of Australia.
