How do I get them spelling correctly?

Strategies to improve proof reading and spelling 

- Explicit teaching and modelling of the process

- Daily expectations to form letters correctly and spell high frequency words correctly reinforcing visual memory

- Stand up and turn around - now you are a reader

- Practise class pronunciation of words to develop correct sounds

- Visual aids

- Cut up sentences to discuss parts of a sentence

- reread yesterdays writing

- Use models - children's own writing examples around the room, quality published pieces of text

- Word Search (lower case only, horizontal only to develop good visual recognition)

- Sound boxes

- Proof reading in a structured way - 1st punctuation, 2nd meaning

- Dictation - Read whole sentence, children repeats then writes. Proof read.

- Make it multi sensory!!!!
