Other Spelling Strategies
Other methods can include:
- Rainbow writing! Using coloured pencils in different ways can help to make parts of words memorable.You could highlight the tricky parts of the word or write the tricky part in a different colour. You could also write each letter in a different colour or write the word in red, then overlay in orange, yellow and so on.
- Making up memorable ‘silly sentences’ containing the word.
- Saying the word in a funny way – for example, pronouncing the ‘silent’ letters in a word.
- Clapping and counting to identify the syllables in a word.
