 Spellings

Are you having trouble getting your child to learn their spellings?

Try this:

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.
