Spelling Homework

 



Monday

 

More Monday

 

Write each word six times. Each day (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday), write each word three times and complete the spelling activity.

 


Tuesday

 

Spelling: Terrible Tuesdays

 

*** Mistaken Spelling Fun

Good spellers can write words different ways to find the right way. This fun practice helps you learn the many different ways “sounds” are spelled in English while helping you learn the correct pattern for each of your words.

 

*** Directions:

Choose five different words (the base words are different) from your spelling list. Write each word correctly twice. Then write each word in as many different ways as it could be spelled phonetically, but isn’t. Box in the correct words. This exercise helps you learn all the possible spellings so you can learn to pick the correct one. Use a dictionary, if necessary.

 

*** Examples:

 

Exercise exercise

exorsise exorsize exersighze

 

Certain certain

sertin sertun surtin scurtin

 

Forcible forcible

forsible forsable phorsable phorscabel ghorscible

 

Efficient efficient

ephishant uphishant eghitiant ephiciant

 

Leaf leaf

** leef leiphe lleaphe lief leif
