Are you not the best speller? Are you always getting low marks because of spelling errors? Than this is for you!

Read lots of books. Reading gives you a better knowledge of words. When reading, you should have a dictionary handy so if you find a word you don’t understand, look it up!

Highlight or circle incorrect words in spelling tests. This way you can practice them over and over until you get them right. If you don’t know the meanings, look them up in the dictionary!

Use the words in sentences. This technique really drills the words into your brain.

Ask your parents to test you on the words that you have studied. If you are still getting them wrong, keep trying! Once you get the hang of the words, you’ll be a spelling whiz in no time!


  • Never give up! That is the worst thing you can do.
  • Buy a pocket-sized dictionary if you want. That way, if you see a word you don’t know on a sign, take your dictionary out of your pocket and look it up! the more you read and write the more a better speller you become.
