To improve and develop their spelling children need to:
  • develop an interest in words
  • feel safe about trying new words
    • not just words they're sure about
  • learn about
    • the way words are built up using syllables
    • basic spelling patterns of English
    • memorizing strategies
    • the meanings of words
    • prefixes and suffixes
  • write for their own enjoyment
    • without the fear that they will be criticized
  • read for pleasure
