Our idea is pretty simple. We want to give kids the help they need, where they need it: in the palm of their hand - or very nearby!
Handy Spelling aims to organise Spelling and Grammar to make literacy easier. Our products are based on years of teaching children who’ve needed help with the tricky, and very old, English language.
Whether a child is dyslexic, learning English as a foreign language or simply hasn’t yet mastered the alphabetic code, Handy products give an instant, visual reminder of the most frequently confused words, so they can focus on what is important, their expression and imagination.
Our tested products are designed to be clear, colourful, joyful and useful: pencils, wrist bands, rulers, posters, notepads, stickers, (temporary) tattoos, and more.
We are Sally and Maggie and we have over 40 years of experience between us in design and education. We run spelling camps and teach teachers how to make kids excited about Spelling. Now we’d like to share our ideas with you. We will be uploading some of our favourite Spelling and Grammar lessons right here to give you ideas and materials to try at home and we’d love to hear from you too.
We hope your children enjoy our Handy character, he’ll be clarifying meaning in his own cheeky way. We’ve also used the clearest font and layout on all our products and ensured pencils work for left and right-handed kids.
Welcome to Handy Spelling.
