Take Your Student's Education to New Heights.

Silver Moon® Spelling Rules curriculum and professional development courses were created to meet the needs of both teachers and students. 

Originally created for small group instruction, Silver Moon® is the solution for struggling spellers. Students improve their spelling through building a deeper understanding of our language.

We Believe Spelling is Important.

Poor spelling has no correlation to intelligence, though it can affect a person's confidence and how we're viewed by peers and colleagues. Poor spelling can also be embarrassing and frustrating. Research shows that English Language spelling is between 84% - 90% rule based.  Strong spelling instruction will improve spelling, reading fluency, reading comprehension, written expression, and confidence.

Meeting Student & Teacher Needs

Since its creation in 2015, Silver Moon® is meeting the needs of teachers and students.  Many teachers have not been trained to teach spelling rules using an explicit, systematic, cumulative, and multi-sensory approach.  Silver Moon® is the solution for this problem.  

Silver Moon® is being used with many types of students and with a variety of ages and grade levels. Currently, Silver Moon® is being implemented by special education teachers, general education teachers, reading specialists, gifted and talented teachers, English as a Second Language (ESL/ELL) teachers, private dyslexia specialists/clinics, college of education students, and parents. We are proud to share that our products are also endorsed and distributed by: William VanCleave (WVCED) and eNasco Special Education Supply.

About the Author

Silver Moon® curriculum and professional development courses were created by Kelly Steinke. Kelly is a former special education teacher who, after working in various teaching positions across the country, saw a common and consistent gap in teacher knowledge in the area of literacy - specifically systematic and explicit phonics, phonemic awareness, and word structure. She created Silver Moon® to give teachers this much needed information, enabling them to teach spelling in a manner that also improves literacy. All students benefit from Silver Moon® instruction, but struggling readers and spellers reap the most benefits.

Kelly is the creator and author of Silver Moon®, the director and president of READ Learning Educational Services, LLC, a "dynamic, insightful and passionate" speaker/presenter, the President of the WI State Branch of the International Dyslexia Association, and an adjunct university instructor.
