10 Ways to Increase Engagement in Spelling

Dear Homeschooler,

Here are 10 ways to keep your student engaged in spelling:

  1. Use magnet letters.
  2. Use smelly markers.
  3. Draw a shape or a long convoluted line and have your student write along the perimeter.
  4. Use character-themed letters.
  5. Use window markers.
  6. Use letter beads. I suggest using a pipecleaner to string them on instead of string.
  7. Have your student write really big, really small, or sideways, or upside-down.
  8. Allow your student to make each letter into a picture. My son loves making ‘monster letters.’
  9. Use letter stamps.

Have you tried something with your student that has increased their engagement in spelling class? I’d love to hear about it.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
