It can be incredibly difficult for your child to communicate properly through written form if they don't have strong spelling skills. After all, there's a world of difference between being "scared" and  being "scarred." For tips on how you can help your child strengthen their spelling skills, read the post below.

How to Help Your Child Develop Their Spelling Skills

  1. Let's begin with two simple habits that will help your child immensely: reading and writing. Reading will allow them to see how words are spelled, while writing will help them actively practice their spelling.
  2. Of course, giving a dictionary to your child can guide them in their journey to better spelling, since they'll be able to verify a word's correct spelling whenever they need to.
  3. For some children, it can be challenging to memorize every spelling rule there is. For that reason, you should try mnemonic devices (like making up rhymes or songs) to help your child recall them better.
  4. Another tip that can improve their spelling is to keep a spelling log. In it, they can write down words that are challenging to them, as well as homonyms and homophones, and practice them often to master their spelling.
  5. Finally, games may also help your child become a better speller. Scrabble, crossword puzzles, and even some apps, require the player to have good spelling skills. Your child will be able to practice as they have fun.
