Spelling Resources

Spelling is the combination of letters that form the written word. Reading and spelling go hand in hand, and very young kids start with the most basic understanding of spelling when they first learn how to put letters together. Later, as they become more proficient readers, they use spelling to begin the process of writing. With our tools and resources, your student will grow more confident in their spelling abilities.

Resources to Soar Over Spelling Speed Bumps

It’s not uncommon for students to hit a few snags when it comes to spelling. The Learning Library’s spelling tools can help learners over the tricky hurdle with straightforward lessons and activities.

Fumbling over February or stumbling over September will not be necessary with teacher-created worksheets dedicated to learning specific words. Fifth-graders can tackle the advanced and confusing world of homophones with valuable guided lessons. An enjoyable cave adventure game can help kids learn long-form words quickly.

Numerous inventive lesson plans such as Onomatopoeia Zoo introduces second-graders to the alliterative word with the famous tune of “Old McDonald.” The “Diphthong Song” primes kids on those rebellious multi-vowel sounds. In addition to creative lessons, hands-on challenges make the often tedious topic of spelling a delight. Creating a vocabulary flip book is a tried-and-true method of committing spelling words to memory, but other tasks such as the jumping bean phonics game utilizes children's playful nature.

The curated library of resources will not only help kids learn the essential skill of spelling, but they will also instill a love of letters.
