To become a great speller, you need to learn a few different rules, which can be challenging for some students. If you notice that your child requires assistance in order to spell correctly, you can give the following tips a try to help them improve.

How to Help Your Child Develop Their Spelling Skills

  1. First and foremost, you should motivate your child to become an avid reader and writer. This is because, the more they perform these activities, the more they will practice their spelling skills (in a passive and in a more active manner), which is the first step towards improving.
  2. A tool that can help your child immensely in their journey to becoming a better speller, is a dictionary. With it, your child will be able to search for any words whose spelling they're unsure of and correct what needs to be corrected.
  3. As mentioned above, to spell well, you need to be aware of a few different rules. If your child has trouble retaining and remembering that information, turn to mnemonic devices, like a catchy song, to help them recall them easily.
  4. Another practice that can help them is to keep a spelling log where they document the words that they find difficult to spell. There, they can practice them until they get the hang of them.
  5. Lastly, try making sharpening spelling skills fun with the use of games. Scrabble, crossword puzzles, certain apps, and online games can provide your child with the spelling practice they need to develop their skills in a fun and entertaining way.
