What are the biggest differences between a student who knows how to spell and one who struggles?
Kids who are good spellers tend to enjoy learning, read more, and do better in all subject areas. They normally have the confidence that they can tackle most academic learning.
Poor spellers, on the other hand, usually dislike school, are often frustrated, and try to hide their learning challenges.
That was the problem with almost all of my students. They couldn’t spell because some of them didn’t even know the alphabets. I really worked on that. This year, I am going to work on spelling, phonograms, & high frequency & sight words to keep my students on the marvelous track they started on.
Here’s to continued success!
