The solution? Look up the words in the dictionary. It's what I was told when I was in school. I have tried to tell that to my kids as well. I have heard so many times when I tell them to look up a word in the dictionary, "If I don't know how to spell it, how can I find it in the dictionary?" To tell you the truth I had no good answer for that. I think I probably gave the same answer that my teachers did. Just look till you find it. Start with how you think it's spelled and go from there.
huh, pretty lame.
Dictionary skills are important, don't get me wrong. But using the dictionary the way I described above has done nothing but caused frustration for all of us.
See-N-Spell is a handy reference to have for the quick look up of words that are commonly used and abused.
See-N-Spell sells for $9.99 and is a great resource for your budding writers. It also helps with spelling. But it gives kids confidence to be able to find the words on their own. This is a tool we will use often and for a long time to come. I mean, we are always spelling things, right?
