Mrs R's top ten tips for easing the agony of spelling homework!!

Spelling homework often creates tension at home. Kids and parents are tired and the last thing they want to do after a hard day is to get the books out again.

This is especially true for those children that are visual and multi-sensory learners. Many of us learn more effectively if we can see, touch, smell, hear or taste something to do with what we are learning.

If children can make some kind of visual or multi-sensory connection when they are learning their spellings they are far more likely to recall the experience and commit it to memory. You can double this effect if it is fun at the same time.

Take a look at my top ten tips for easing the agony of spelling homework. Try one out this week and see if it helps. Have fun, lots of fun!!
