    Spelling Strategies
     
    Let me share some of my favorite spelling strategies!
    • 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! :)
