Spelling is a crucial skill that your child needs to learn in order to express themselves appropriately in written form. However, there are a lot of rules and guidelines they should follow to spell correctly, which makes it easy to understand if your child needs a bit of help to master them completely. If that’s the case, don’t worry. You can follow the tips below to lend a helping hand in this matter.

How to Help Your Child with Spelling

Motivate Them to Read and Write More

Some of the best ways to practice spelling are to read and write more. Encourage your child to read great authors and to keep a journal so they can improve their spelling and grammar skills.

Employ Mnemonics

There are quite a few rules (and their exceptions) that your child should learn if they want to spell correctly. Use mnemonic devices, such as acronyms, so they can retain that information more easily.

Teach Them to Use a Dictionary

Dictionaries can be a very helpful learning tool if you want your child to improve their spelling skills. You can read the guide linked here to teach your child to use the dictionary effectively.

Encourage Them to Keep Spelling Log

It’s probable that your child will have a more challenging time spelling some words than others. Encourage them to keep a spelling log in which they can practice those especially tricky words.

Search for Practice Sheets

Lastly, if you want to ensure that your child has enough spelling practice, you can search for worksheets online for them to complete. Reward your child if they complete worksheets correctly.
