Go to your quiet spot. Put all of the things you need around you. Get comfortable.

Get your word ready. If you don’t have a word yet, choose a word from the dictionary.

If you don’t know the correct spelling of the word, take the spelling handbook or dictionary. Look up the correct spelling of the word you are going to memorize. Write the correct spelling on the piece of paper with the pencil or the pen.

Take the first letter of each word and you get: "arithmetic." Now, when that caller with the bulky voice yells, "ARITHMETIC!" you'll know exactly what to spell.
