Here are some suggestions to help you learn your spellings...
1. Choose 5 words at time to focus on over the week using a 'Look, cover, write check' approach.
2. Choose 5 words at a time to try and write in different sentences across the week. This will really help the children understand the word and the contexts it can be used in.
3. Choose words, and challenge yourself to use them at different places within a sentence - start, middle and end. (Special toys are kept on the shelf. I love the special things you do for me. The letter is so special.)
4. Choose words and look up their meaning in the dictionary.
5. Write the words in interesting ways - turning them into pictures.
6. Write words and use dots and dashes to count the phonemes (sounds) E.g W eigh t = 3 sounds
7. Dictation - Adult reads the word in a sentence, and the child records the sentence.
8. 'Speed spell' See how many times you can write the word in 30 seconds. Challenge an adult!
We hope this gives you some interesting alternatives to learning spellings.
