Mrs B's bits

In order to be 'spelling ready' for Class 4, these are the spellings that you should be already confident spelling. Highlight the spellings that you can do & then use one of the suggested activities to help you master the others. Once you've got them, highlight them too. By September, your whole list could/should be highlighted!

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...

BECAUSE - Big Elephants Can Always Understand Small Elephants

SEPARATE - There's A RAT in separate

NECESSARY - Never Eat Cake Eat Salmon Sandwich And Remain Young


Tell me your favourite mnemonics and I'll add them to the list
