Winter is a great time to include fun seasonal words in your child’s spelling list. You can include cold words, Christmas words, Valentine words and more. One of the benefits of homeschooling is flexible learning. That flexibility includes choosing your own spelling words and creating lists based on the season or the topic you are currently studying.
A child who has trouble learning spelling words might benefit from you teaching the words visually. Have your child draw a picture of the word on an index card and flip the card over to write the word in color on the back. Vowels or tricky combinations should be in a contrasting color. My daughter did well learning her words visually. There are lots of fun ways for a visual-spatial learner to practice spelling words.
