If you understand the difference between "scarred" and "scared", then you understand why strong spelling skills are so important. For that reason, in the following post, you'll find tips on how to help your child become a stronger speller.

How to Help Your Child Develop Their Spelling Skills

  1. First of all, you should help them build the habit of reading and writing. Both of these activities will help them practice their spelling skills (reading in a more passive way and writing in a more active manner).
  2. Providing a dictionary to your child can help them with their spelling, their vocabulary, their reading comprehension, and more. Just be sure that you provide the right kind of dictionary, and that you teach them how to use it.
  3. Spelling can be complicated to some children because it entails memorizing a myriad of different rules. That's why you should use mnemonic devices (like rhymes or songs) to help your child retain and recall those spelling rules more easily.
  4. If your child keeps a spelling log, they'll be able to keep track of homonyms, homophones, and similar words. They'll also be able to write down and practice words with challenging spelling.
  5. Lastly, you can also use games to help improve your child's spelling. For instance, a game of Scrabble or crossword puzzles will make them pay attention to how words are spelled, which will help them sharpen their skills.
