Handy Hints

 

POST IT PRACTICE

Write ONE tricky word per post it notes and stick them in places that you see frequently in your house: front door, bedside light, fish bowl, loo seat, TV remote, cereal box etc.

TECHNICOLOUR SPELLER

Take a tricky spelling and make it beautiful! Write the word in glorious Technicolour. Will you make each letter a different colour or each sound? Perhaps you will write the difficult bit in sparkly pen!! Will you write it in bubble writing or shadow write? It's up to YOU!

MARVELLOUS MNEMONIC

Can you make up a memorable phrase or trick to help you remember the spelling. Perhaps you could discuss it at tea-time with your family. Whose do you like best?

Here are some examples that help me...
