improve spelling test
Successful tips for improving spelling scores from Stowell Learning Center. Feel free to sign-up for email tips on their website.
For most elementary school students, spelling tests happen every week. Often this is a very discouraging "exercise in frustration."
Because many times spelling is the clue that there are auditory processing issues. Auditory processing skills can be trained through special programs that are far more than just "drilling" spelling words.
Until those issues can be eliminated, below you'll find a technique that will help any student who has to study spelling words. It won't fix auditory processing difficulties, but it will help to get through this week's spelling test.
This technique uses the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic channels to anchor the word and it's spelling. This technique sometimes seems to parents that it will take longer. Getting prepped may be a bit longer, but this system is very effective at getting those words "down cold" in about the same amount of time most students spend studying.
