Foundational Principles Discussion

Solar Spell is based on two foundation principles:

1. Spell only the sounds in the word
2. Spell each unique sound one unique way

Together these principles restore strength and meaning to graphemes and frees consistency from the shackles of Legacy Spelling.

Beginning readers can trust that each letter says what it should. This speeds acquisition of literacy and changes the chore of learning to read to the joy of reading and learning. Beginning readers find Solar Spell natural to understand because the visual letter sequence matches the auditory sequence of spoken words they already know. Existing Legacy Spelling readers, as will be the case with any change to spelling, will face negative emotions ranging from annoyance to disdain from their pattern recognizer until they become familiar with the new patterns of Solar Spell.
