Spelling tests are Fridays.
Study every night once your child gets his or her list.
Here are some ways to study:
Look for patterns in the words such as ending in ight. Let your child highlight the pattern.
Write the words in crayons of different colors for each word.
Do practice oral and written spelling test.
Use different materials to write on that your child likes such as a dry erase board, chalkboard, magnadoodle, a favorite notebook, or use a special pen or pencil.
Set aside a time for you and your child that is most convenient to both of you such as after supper, but before bedtime. This allows your child some free time, and time for yourself to get things done.
