Helping Child with Spelling

helps child spelling

It is quite common for children’s reading to be better than their spelling but it is a mistake to think that by reading more and more a child’s spelling will automatically improve – it won’t. Some children seem to develop spelling ability very easily but the vast majority need a lot of help and teaching. All children need to be taught a way of learning to spell both new words and those which cause them problems.

Left to their own devices, children will often try to learn a word by repeating the letter names over and over to themselves. This may be a way of remembering something for the short term, but it is not likely to result in long term learning. The best way of illustrating this is to think about what happens when you need to look up a telephone number. You look it up, repeat the number two or three times and then dial it. You can remember which number to dial then, but if you were asked what that number is a few hours later you wouldn’t be able to recall it.

Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read

The Reach Out and Read program is one of the proudest contributions that are made by Education Smart Care Center. This is a scheme that is designed to encourage children into the habit of reading with the help of their parents. It has been particularly successful in changing the face of the educational system for the better. For example it tackles the issues of literacy at the community level so that parents are supported by all the people that are within the community. That is an achievement that is worth fighting for.

There are different perspectives on the various schemes that have been implemented in an effort to raise the level of functional literacy within the community. Many of these initiatives can be justified by the wonderful results that they have been able to bring to the table so far. The end result is that the various elements of the community are effectively supported in the initiatives to improve literacy across the different levels.
