Following on from a word study, the spelling idea learnt should then be placed into a writing context. Shared reading, which is defined as "where enlarged books are used to explore the conventions of print and the reading process", is an ideal method in following up with spelling reinforcement (Hill, 2006, p. 73).

By picking out words that are formed with the spelling rule previously learnt through a word study, this aids in creating links for children with reading and writing (Bush, 2008).

Using a problem-solving and inquiry approach allows students to come to answers themselves and makes the entire process of learning to spell a word far more meaningful and interesting (Bush, 2008).
