Sample text

Encourage the child to say the word out loud to a rhythm using letter names f-r-i-e-n-d. Try clapping/hopping as each letter is spoken. This method is useful for pupils with auditory strength. Use a Spelling blitz sheet. Write the word in bold at the top of a sheet of A4 paper. Supply a range of writing implements in different colours. Ask the child to write the word as many times as possible using the different pens/pencils and in different colours. Make use of a word processor. The child can type out the word as many times as possible in a range of fonts, sizes and colours.

Spelling well and writing well are closely linked. As children learn joined-up handwriting they gain confidence and are able to write faster. For poor spellers the movement involved in joining letters in a cursive script provides kinaesthetic reinforcement, which they don’t receive when printing one letter at a time. Writing whole words also helps children with getting letters in the right order, left to right orientation, and the regularity of certain letter patterns. Initially, writing a cursive script will slow the child down but assure them that with practice they will get faster.

Only mark for the target word in the sentence. Ask the child to write the word with eyes shut so they cannot use visual cues. Once they are happy with writing single words this way, try writing short dictated sentences with eyes closed. Corrections If the child does write an incorrect spelling, ask them to try again. Do not let them try to alter the incorrect word by writing over the top of it. Left-handers Be aware left-handers need to position paper in an opposite direction to a right-hander, so that they can see what they have written.
