In the primary grades spelling is generally developmental based on known phonic elements (such as blends, short vowels, word families, etc.) as the year progresses children may begin to grow towards more standard spelling.  You can support your child's writing at home by:

    • Word wall words should be spelt correctly

    • If I can spell ______________ I can spell __________________ (ex. day, play) using word families, rhyming words 

    • Stretching out a tricky word
