Chalk Talk: How to Encourage Spelling Practice at Home
While there are many technological devices that can help a student spell a word correctly, good spelling skills are still an important asset in school and the workforce. There are some easy steps you can take to encourage your student to practice their spelling skills at home. Young students love to help their parents do “grownup” things, so why not use that to your advantage. Have them write out the grocery list while you help them sound out any unfamiliar words. Students would also enjoy making a game of spelling by playing Hangman in which they guess the letters until they can decode the word or phrase. You can even hold your own spelling be by having your student compete against their siblings or friends for prizes. These simple and fun ways to practice spelling can help give your student the spelling skills needed to be successful.
