5 Fun Ways To Teach Your Kids How to Spell Without Mistake

Spellings are the stepping-stones to a child’s education. However, it can be tricky teaching your child how to spell and explain how the letters work for different words. And, if you don’t teach them properly, your child may not learn how to spell properly at all.

So, here’s a list of fun ways to teach your child how to spell correctly.

The sound matters

Tell your child to focus on the sounds in words rather than letters. That way, she/he is more likely to remember the spelling.

Highlight the tricky part

There might be a particular part of the word that your child struggles to remember. Look at the word together and highlight the part that they find particularly tricky.

Break it down

Try breaking down polysyllabic words to make each syllable easier to remember. Help your child decipher how many syllables there are in a word by using the clapping technique - one clap per syllable.

Picture it

Ask your child to conjure up a visual image of the spelling they’re trying to remember. This helps them remember it more quickly.

On their palm

This method employs the power of muscle memory and works best for kinesthetic learners who learn best through doing. Ask them to write each letter of the word into the palm or onto their leg with their finger. With enough repetitions, they’ll remember how the word felt to write.

If you’re looking to teach your child how to spell and improve their spelling skills and confidence, make sure that the learning process is fun, exciting and interactive.
