Before I get to today's spelling topic, I should let you know I have sale August 18th and 19th in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. 28% off!
Did you know that the average person needs to encounter a word 7 times in order for it to become natural for them to recognize and use?
Both vocabulary and spelling practice come into play with that data.
But how do you practice spelling? Write it 7 times? No! Please no! It has to be spaced repititions. That means 7 separate instances of encountering the word.
Kids these days do a lot of copying words over and over again. Really? There's no better way?
Yes there is! Move with those words! Make art with those words! Make noise with those words! Think with those words! Categorize those words!
But whatever you do, please don't subject children to hours of writing the same word over and over again!
Need ideas? I have an upper grade and a primary book in my shop! Ideas, printables, activity choices galore!
