Spelling Practice Help for Boys!

Sharing is caring!

Spelling is actually one of the hardest things to teach someone. I can ask a wide handful of people if they are good spellers and most of them will tell me, “No, thank goodness for spell check.” Spelling is actually one of the top types of errors that are found in a person’s writing. That’s why teaching kids how to spell is a vital skill for them to conquer. It actually puts them a step ahead of the rest of the majority of the population. Plus they can spend less time editing work and more time being productive. I’ve gathered up some spelling games to help your child excel at spelling.  Typically, boys hate the repetitiveness that comes with learning spelling words.  This Spelling Practice help for boys will get away from the worksheets and more into engaging learning (by the way, betcha your girls will love these games, too!)

Hi Kelli I love your site. I have a very bright grade three boy who absolutely detests spelling. He memorized for quizzes then never spells anything correct in his writing. I love your games, ideas to teach spelling fun etc. Is there a “spelling package” with all of these ideas in one place I can purchase from you? My six year old girl would also enjoy this over summer. Thanks so much . I am in a small town in Canada.

Thanks so much for your sweet words. We do not have a spelling curriculum at this time, unfortunately. :-(
