Make Writing & Spelling More Fun

Does your child have a short attention span for writing? Does she dread practicing spelling? Many children love the computer. In order to get your child to be excited about her work, encourage her to:

  • Compose her stories on the computer whenever possible. This will allow her to get really creative. She can choose colors and fonts, and add pictures to go along with her text.
  • Pretest her spelling words on the computer. Many word-processing programs will identify misspellings, so your child will also get a heads-up about words she needs to look up.
