Knowing how to communicate effectively through written words requires several skills, including spelling. If you notice that your child has a challenging time with it, here are a few tips that can help them improve significantly.

How to Help Your Child Work on Their Spelling Skills

  1. Encourage them to be avid readers and writers. When they perform either of these activities, they are inadvertently practicing several skills, like spelling, grammar, and more.
  2. Dictionaries can be great learning tools if used correctly. They can help your child with new words, and with a word's spelling. Teach them how to use one so they can take advantage of it.
  3. Mnemonic devices can also be of assistance in this respect. After all, there are a lot of spelling rules your child should memorize, so make use of rhymes/songs to help them retain that information.
  4. It's a good idea to keep a spelling log where your child can note and practice the words they have trouble spelling. This way, they'll be able to improve on them little by little.
  5. Finally, make sure your child practices often: there are online games, apps, worksheets, and other materials they can use at home to become a master speller.
