Have-a-Go at Spelling

Oct 10, 2009 by

Have students circle several words from a rough draft that may be misspelled. Ask them to “have a go” at spelling the words again. Encourage them to visualize the word, spell it like it sounds, or spell it by analogy to a spelling pattern they already know.  This is a common spelling strategy used by good spellers.  Good spellers will write a word several ways to see which one “looks right.”
