Variations to this suggestion  should be made by giving  more complex words to be spelt  by  learners who have  demonstrated the competence in correct spelling.  The  progression to spelling longer words and short phrases  should be accelerated among such learners. This is intended  to take care of differentiated curriculum and  learning. For those struggling with spelling simple words, more time could be spent encouraging them to improve clarity and legibility even as they strive to spell correctly.
