Are you having trouble getting your child to learn their spellings?
Use a one-minute timer to write a word as many times as possible in a minute. Count the correct ones and record your answers so that children can see their progress.
Think of a clever mnemonics to help them to remember more difficult spellings.
You can type in your child's spellings and create a printable word search at:
If you have any creative ways of teaching spellings to your children, please share so that I can put your ideas on our website.
