Sharp spelling skills are necessary to communicate effectively through the written word, develop stronger reading skills, and open employment opportunities. If your child could use assistance to become a better speller, the post below will share tips on how you can help.

How to Help Your Child Develop Their Spelling Skills

Read and Write Often

Reading and writing are two great activities that help children develop stronger academic skills, among which is spelling. Reading helps them practice spelling passively, while writing helps them put their spelling skills to good use.

Provide a Dictionary

A dictionary can be an invaluable learning tool. Not only can your child use it to check a word's spelling, but they can also increase their vocabulary and their understanding of the world with it.

Employ Mnemonic Devices

For some children, spelling can be challenging because it encompasses several rules they have to memorize. To help your child, employ mnemonic devices that will allow them to retain and recall information better (such as the popular rhyme: 'I' before 'E' except after 'C').

Keep a Spelling Log

Encourage your child to keep a spelling log where they jot down the words that are most challenging to them. There, they can practice them and keep track of them to see how they progress over time.

Play a Few Games

Finally, certain games, such as Scrabble and crossword puzzles, can make strengthening spelling skills fun and entertaining. Plus, when you play with your child, you'll also have a chance to share time and bond with them.
