Background of -Students spelling abilities play a factor in their reading fluency, as well as,
the Study reading comprehension
(include
substantial -Spelling is an essential and complex skill involving multiple components,
evidence/ including visual memory, phoneme-grapheme awareness, as well as,
justification to orthographic and morphophonemic knowledge
conduct the
study -The need to address a potentially critical situation in the classroom, in that
learning difficulties in spelling performance may impact (a) clarity in

-The need to strengthen student literacy skills in an educational


environment with the proper use of technology

-The need to support and guide the students in their english literacy

-The need to address young people who use instant messaging and
therefore enter into a practice of using slang and phonetic replacements

-The need to delimit the use of text abbreviations to decrease technology


based communication

-The need to delimit the use of auto-correct for the students to lessen the
struggle to spell properly after relying on technology to check their work or
project

-The need to strengthen the fact that spelling supports learning to read, and
for older children, it likely is that learning about the meaningful
relationships between words will contribute to their vocabulary growth and
reading comprehension

-The need to assess the performance level of the respondents in terms of


their spelling ability
