spelling learning for kids


Spelling Practice With Kids

We want our kids to be best in everything, don’t we? And, we pay attention to their writing skills, reading skills but somehow we miss taking care of their spellings. Well, make the use of this quarantine period and help them to practice spelling frequently. Because this activity won’t be completed in a day or two. It needs to practice and should be done consistently. 

As you all are aware, that I have participated in the A to Z Blogging Challenge with #BlogChatterA2Z and I have chosen the topic related to the fun activities to do with your kids during the quarantine period. So, the alphabet for today is S, and S for spelling practice with Kids seems the right choice. 

We know that spellings are important and it’s not just limited to your English language but also to Hindi or your native language. Children should be persuaded to follow the right spelling, even if they are making mistakes. The ‘let it go’ attitude would be really harmful and can cause a hindrance in their writing comprehension. 

Why Spelling Practice With Kids?

Spelling Practice with Kids is essential because people with bad spellings make them look less credible. I know, we might be living in an era where our mobile phones or computers have spell check but it is important that they should know the spelling. I think reading, writing, and spelling are linked together. If any of those are missing, then it will disrupt their writing or reading skills. 

Material Required for the Spelling Practice With Kids

There is no specific set of materials required for practising spelling with your kids. It depends upon which way you follow to be creative to make your kids learn the spelling in an easier way so that they can remember it forever. 

How to do “Spelling Practice With Kids” 

Here are some of the ways that have helped my kids to learn the spelling of different words at ease. 

  1. Playing jumbled words with your kids. Jumble up the letters of the word and give them a clue to find out the word and place the word in the correct spellings. 
  2. Using a letter bracelet to make words out of it which will add a touch of creativity as well. 
  3. Playing spelling bee or spelling contest online or you can even download the Scrabble app as well. 
  4. You can even use a Scrabble game as well where your child can arrange the spelling and earn points for that.

Key Learnings 

I learned that not every teacher pays proper attention to each child to find out their spelling mistakes. So, these spellings related activities have improved not only her spellings but also her vocabulary. Now, whenever she goes back to school, I don’t have to worry about the spelling mistakes that we have practised. 

My Overall Experience

Angel and I had a great experience in trying out different fun ways to learn the spellings but we do practise it daily so that she doesn’t forget spellings the other day. 

So, try out this activity with your kids too, and don’t forget to share the experience in the comment section below. If possible, you can also share the pictures of while practising new words and their spellings with your kids and tag me, @sneha_261013 on Instagram.
