Spelling for kids. It isn’t always easy to teach your kids to spell, or help your children to learn the alphabet.

As parents or educators what can be done to help teach your kids with their spelling?

Are there any spelling activities or spelling games that be done to familiarize kids with spelling of common, everyday words?

Can you accelerate your child’s learning curve and actually help children learn to spell faster?

The answer is YES! Obviously you need to familiarize your child, children or preschoolers with the letters of the alphabet first.

Children need to recognize what the letter looks like, how it is printed and how you say it’s name.

Doing exercises and quizzing your children on letters will work wonders with regards to them learning letters.

One thing you can do as parents or teachers is as follows.

Write out each letter of the alphabet. You could write ‘1’ large letter of the alphabet on a piece of paper or Bristol board (it’s a bit more durable.)

The letters could be made big and bold using a thick, black permanent marker or paint.

You would want to use rhymes to teach your children the order of the letters of the alphabet while you show each letter in its proper order.

You could use these to ‘quiz’ your children or preschoolers.

It would probably be best to quiz the children by showing them the chosen letter (starting at A) and continuing through the alphabet, again all in order until they have a solid understanding of the order of the letters of the alphabet.

You could ‘quiz’ them further and give them examples of words that start with the ‘letter you are showing’.

For example, “A is for apple, ape, ant”. You could name a few then have them try to list a few names that they may think start with the letter you are showing.

Practice makes perfect. Remember, this isn’t going to happen right away!

You have to help to really make them understand the letters, the order in which they come in the alphabet and how you say them.

After that time giving examples of simple words that start with the chosen letter really help them to advance that much more.

You could also use words found in the newspaper or words in magazines to quiz your child.

You could cut out big, bolded words and have an assortment of short words to start (Ex.) cat, dog, hat, boat etc.

Have them move from ‘left’ to ‘right’ and go one letter at a time to say each ‘letter’ as it appears.

This really helps to make it fun and challenging for kids. It is nice to really ‘praise’ them up when they identify each ‘letter’ as it appears moving from the left side to the right side.

After you have done this for a while you can start working on helping them to sound words out etc.

You don’t want to move too quickly, but you want to really help your children to develop the basics first, then, expand on those spelling and letter identification skills.
