Teach Spelling Words in Context

The next time your child is learning new spelling words, turn this traditional activity on its head. Write a story, intentionally misspelling the words from her list. Have your child be the teacher and correct your work. Learning how to use the words correctly and in context will help your child master the spelling and usage of each new word.
