At Home Activities for Spelling Practice

At Home spelling practice suggestions support more practice with spelling assignment.

Look for Patterns

  • Words Sorts:  Ask your child to show you how he/she sorts words based on the pattern(s) studied during the week
  • Prove It:  Talk about the word patterns and help your child find other words that follow the pattern(s).
  • Color Coding:  Use highlighters to color code the patterns in the words, with each pattern highlighted in a different color.

Practice the Words

  • Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check:  Study the words by looking at the words, saying them aloud, covering them, writing them, and checking the spelling. 

Practice the Words with Tactile Experiences

  • Provide a tray of salt, sand, sugar or flour, and trace spelling words in the tray.
  • Provide a large space for writing i.e., a chalkboard or the sidewalk. Use chalk or a wet sponge or wet paint brush and shape the words.

Share Writing Experiences

  • Encourage writing projects at home i.e., letters to family, thank you notes, lists, homemade greeting cards.
