Spelling can affect your child's academic efforts more than you know. Their reading, writing, communication, and even their concentration abilities can be in some way influenced by their spelling level. That's why it's important that you follow the tips below to help your child spell.

How to Help Your Child Develop Their Spelling Skills

More Reading and Writing

Reading and writing can do wonders for your child's spelling. When your child reads, they're witnessing how words are spelled correctly. When your child writes, they're putting into practice the spelling rules they know.

Provide a Dictionary

A dictionary can help your child learn new words, expand their vocabulary, and better their spelling. Just ensure that the dictionary your child has is appropriate for them and that they know how to use it effectively so that they can get the most out of it.

Employ Mnemotechnics

To learn to spell correctly, your child needs to learn a myriad of rules (and their exceptions). If this has proven to be challenging for your child, employ mnemotechnics (like rhymes) to enhance their ability to retain and recall that information.

Keep a Spelling Log

A spelling log can be somewhere your child can note down and practice the words that they have a difficult time spelling correctly. If they use it regularly and focus on repeating those words, they'll likely master them in no time.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Finally, make sure your child has enough practice opportunities. You can give them practice sheets from the internet, download a fun spelling app, or play Scrabble in your home. The more they practice, the stronger their spelling skills will be.
