Teaching Spelling

Spelling is one of the most important aspects of effective communication. Learning to spell accurately should not be limited to your child’s weekly spelling test. Written English is based on a complex phonemic code. Therefore, while teaching children to spell, parents and teachers should focus on the phonemic nature of spelling rather than the rote memorization of words.

Why does your child need to learn to spell correctly?

  • Learning to spell words correctly is an important skill because it helps to build the basic foundation for your child’s future education.
  • Spelling is a reading aid – it cements the connection between letters and sounds.
  • Spelling and reading correctly lead to language proficiency.
  • Poor spelling creates a bad impression about a person. Punctuation errors might escape unnoticed, but spelling errors are almost always spotted.
  • A child who is bad at spelling is likely to get lower grades.
