7 Habits to Better Spelling

Be Patient. Learning to become a good speller takes time.

Check your spelling by using a dictionary or list of commonly misspelled words (like your weekly spelling lists).

Learn the correct pronunciation of each word you are trying to spell.

Look up the meaning of each word if you don't know the meaning.

Practice spelling the word, and have someone quiz you.

Keep a list of words in your notebook that you have trouble spelling.

Write and Read regularly.
