My 9 year old daughter spells phonetically. For instance, culture, she spells callcher. Her teacher tells me that her mispelling impedes her learning. I wonder if anyone has an advice for teaching her to correct her spelling, or know a tutor who can teach how to spell, please recommend one. Thanks.
you can order a chart that has all the english phonemes and their various spellings to put on the wall. There is also a small version of the chart in the book.
Read the introduction very carefully. You don't necessarily have to go through all the lessons if you don't want to. Pull out the appropriate lesson, when you see a problem, or, when she spells a word with the non-accepted spelling, show her the part of the chart with all the different ways to spell the sounds she is having trouble with. Have her write the word a bunch of ways (make sure the accepted one makes it into her list!) and see if she can see the one that looks best to her eye. Help her out if she doesn't get it. Each time you read a book together look for a differents sound, for instance ''er''. You'll read ''Her first nurse works early'' for example, and point out all five ways that ''er'' is written in that sentence. This will help her to be more aware of spellings as she reads. Lots and lots of reading will help, too. susan
