Spelling at home

Strategies to help your child with their spelling

Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check for each spelling. To do this your child will need to follow the steps below:

  1. Study the word
  2. Say it aloud a few times
  3. Cover it up with a piece of paper or their hand
  4. Write the spelling next to the original word
  5. Check their version to see if they got it right. 


Find smaller words within larger words e.g. together = to – get – her

Break down words into syllables. For example, the word today has two syllables to/day

Use mnemonics e.g. because big elephants can always understand small elephants

Make a sentence.  Encourage child to write a sentence- how many words from the spelling list can they include?
