Karen Farrer: Spelling

Some spelling practice suggestions:

Take a pretest.  Practice only the missed words.
Practice only 3-5 words each night.
Type the words instead of writing them.
Write the words in different colors.  Use colored pencils, pens, markers, crayons, or paint.
Practice sorting the words by what they have in common.
Make letter tiles or use alphabet magnets to spell the words.
Make lines for the number of letters in a word and then spell the word.
Mix up the letters in a word and then unscramble them to spell the word.
