If your child can’t spell INDOMIE at 5 years, read and act now. Dear parents and teachers, SPELLING is not a reflection of a child’s intelligence, but it is an important skill that children need to master in order to progress in their writing, and as their vocabulary broadens.
Poor spelling is a barrier for children as it can mean a child’s writing is hard for a teacher or parent to read and it can affect a child’s choice of written words as, rather than choosing more advanced words which reflect their oral ability.
Sometimes, they can tend to make more basic word choices that they are more likely to be able to spell accurately. Poor spelling can also be a sign of any learning difficulty like DYSLEXIA.
Spelling is an essential skill that needs to be taught and is something that needs to be continually put into practice through real-life written contexts.
Apps may not be the answer to a whole school spelling scheme (although some schemes do offer an app component), they offer a super and interactive way to practice spelling words and can offer a great way to supplement spelling at home too.
