  1. Many early elementary educators believe that children are not ready to learn to spell at this age. They focus more on writing the way the child hears the words.

    Please talk with your son's teacher.

  2. there are good spelling websites on the internet. Also leapfrog touch is very helpful as well. You can buy it at Walmart,etc.

  3. You could make flashcards as well. You only need paper for this, and scissiors. Just cut the paper in like 8 squares and then behind that squared piece of paper write a word. Tell your son to look at that word for a couple of seconds then immediately flip it over, and ask him to spell.

    hope this helps:-)

  4. I know a lot of children who were spelling in first grade. I was one of them. My mom taught me how to spell by turning it into a game and making it fun for me.
