- Here's a tip that helps me spell a word. I say the word. Then I picture the way it is spelled. Then I write it!
- When I'm learning how to spell a word, the Study Steps to Learn a Word are a big help.
- I think of ways to spell the vowel sounds in a word. Then I try different spellings until the word looks right.
- When I don't know how to spell a word, I sometimes just take my best guess! Then I check it in a dictionary or a thesaurus.
- Sometimes I proofread a sentence backward. I start with the last word and end with the first word. It really helps me notice words I've misspelled! Then I proofread for meaning.
- I proofread my work twice. First, I circle words I know are misspelled. Then, I look for words I'm not sure of.
- When I write a word that is a homophone, I make sure the word makes sense in the sentence.
- When I'm writing a compound word, I think about how the two smaller words are spelled.
- Sometimes thinking of a rhyming word helps me figure out how to spell a word.
- I think about spelling rules, such as hot to change a word's spelling before adding the ending -ed or -ing.
- Drawing the shape of a word helps me remember its spelling.
- When I proofread, I like to work with a partner. First, I read the words aloud as my partner looks at the spelling. Then we switch jobs.
- As the year progresses, the spelling words become more difficult. It is important that you set aside time each night to study the list of words! :)
