5 Steps to Spelling Test Success

  1. Give your child a practice quiz, saying each word aloud within an example sentence and having her write the word down.
  2. Ask her to correct the test herself, identifying the words she missed and saying the word aloud while looking at the correct spelling.
  3. Ask her to close her eyes and visualize the misspelled word, then spell the word out loud.
  4. Then ask her to write the word again and then check to see if she spelled it correctly. If it's still wrong, ask her to repeat steps 2 and 3 before moving on.
  5. On the night before the test, give her another practice quiz.
