As teachers on this board. How can I help my son to improve on his spelling, he is in the 6th grade?
Encourage him to proofread everything he writes. Make sure he always has a dictionary with him when he writes. Small paperback dictionaries and even notebook inserts are handy. Of course, if he's on the internet, he can always Google a word to find the correct spelling. Spell checks are also useful.
Some people never become good spellers, but they learn to use these tools to produce papers without spelling errors.
What was Ferre's purpose in "The Youngest Doll" and did the ending help her achieve the purpose?
