Word building with vocabulary is a vital part of reading. Students have a better understanding of what they are reading when they know the words and the meaning of the words in the text. Therefore, the development of word lists with word origins, prefixes, suffixes, compound words, and homonyms are essential to the students' understanding on the conventions of spelling. According to Shane Templeton, the editor of Voices from the Middle, "Effective spelling instruction powerfully supports the nature and development of the reading process." He also believed that spelling instruction could easily lead into vocabulary instruction. Students need to be taught to look for a connection between familiar misspelled words and a related unfamiliar word. Then students talk about the relationship between the two words. They will then see the similarity in the spelling and the meaning of the words.
