Spelling and Writing

What to try:


  • Alphabet Arc – use magnetic letters or cut out letters.  Ask your child to lay them out in alphabetical order in an arc, like a rainbow.  Show your child a flashcard and then cover it up.  Ask your child to find the letters from the arc which spell the word.  Move the letters down to spell the word.
  • Use the Nessy Learning Programme if you have been given access to it from home
  • Vocabulary book – make lists of useful topic words.  Group words together in categories.  Write the word, what it means and draw or cut and stick a picture as a visual clue.
  • Squeezy bottle writing – fill up a plastic bottle with water and then squirt out the water making ‘water writing’.
