The CSP Spelling and Language Programme (formerly known as The Complete Spelling Programme) is an extensive literacy programme designed to facilitate effective retrieval of spelling words by introducing two strategies for learning to spell
The activities assist children in the unitization of sounds, an essential strategy which reduces the burden on working memory and helps automatic recall.
The programme is sold in PDF format. This is to allow teachers to use the programme on the interactive whiteboard. Schools buying this programme are also granted a licence to print out paper copies for use with children in their school.
We reviewed a number of spelling programmes and felt that ‘The Complete Spelling Programme’ by McMurray and Fleming was best in meeting our needs.
We introduced The Complete Spelling programme to all classes from Primary two to Primary seven.

Having heard of ‘The Complete Spelling Programme’ by McMurray and Fleming I attended several seminars on it. I spoke to the authors who developed and wrote the programme and then brought back an overview of the programme to the staff.
The staff were impressed with the overview and agreed to implement it, ultimately to improve the children’s capability to spell. We saw the benefits.

These are tough times financially and all schools are keen to get value for money in each purchase they make. I ordered this spelling scheme but really I ended up buying a superb language programme for the entire school. The Complete Spelling Programme does what it says on the tin!
