Resources to support teaching spellings at home

 

In year 2, types of spellings and spelling patterns that children are expected to know continues to increase. As well as further 'common exception words' (words that don't follow the usual rules but are used regularly), there is a whole series of spelling patterns and rules for children to learn. Teachers often find that getting children to learn spellings is one thing but then getting them to use them in their everyday writing is another. All the more reason why children should practise their spellings in different ways and then be given the chance to use them in their writing. In addition, when a new spelling rule has been taught, children need to learn how to apply that rule to all words, not just a list they have been given to learn at home. If you wish to boost your child's spelling ability even further, encourage them to read as often as possible; exposure to lots of words will lead to a better understanding of spelling.

Children could practise their spellings with paint, sand, scrabble tiles - be creative as you like! Below are a few methods of learning spellings which you may wish to try out and I hope you find useful.
