A lot of 6th graders have a hard time with spelling words. This is because most of the words are new to them and they can be quite complicated for them to memorize and remember. It is very important to make the learning process fun for the children in order to make it less of work and more of fun for them. Doing this makes it easier for them to learn and remember what they learn.
Below are easy ways to practice 6th grade spelling words.
It is very important to make flash cards fun for your child since it can be quite boring to learn using flash cards. One of the ways you can make flash cards fun is by including creations such as Legos into the study session. Each time he or she gets the correct answer, they get to add a piece to their creation. Basically, all you need to do to make the flash cards fun is find a game your 6th grader enjoys and play it while using the flash cards. This will make learning fun, and they will be able to remember easily.
Puzzles are also an example of easy ways to practice 6th-grade spelling words. All you need to do is write down the words on some pieces of paper, cut out the different letters and have the child spell the word out by joining the letters together. You could also make the letters colorful to make it even more interesting.
This is another simple way to teach your child how to spell. All you need to do is start with a single letter of the word. As you move down, add the following letter one by one on each step for example; a, ap, app, appl, apple. Write the words in a downward style to create a stair and have your child read out each letter and finally the entire word. This is a good way to practice.
This is one of the most popular games among children. You can, therefore, benefit a lot from taking advantage of it. To add this to your spelling sessions, all you need to do is play tic-tac-toe as it is played, but each player has to spell a word correctly before they can place a mark on the surface you are playing on. This makes it very interesting and makes practicing less of a chore.
