Spelling can be HARD. So just in case you think all homeschooled kids are perfect …. get ready for your image to be shattered. My 2nd grader is a terrible speller. Honestly, I thought it must have been genetic because his Mom (yours truly) is also a terrible speller. Spell check helps, but it is what it is. Ask me to to solve a Calculus problem and I’m your girl, but spelling has always been a struggle.

So I changed my approach in teaching my son yet again. We changed to a more hands on spelling program,  added a lot of hands on spelling practice (more on that later), and  we started using this free printable My Spelling Dictionary.

Results?  It’s a year later and my son is rocking spelling! He is consistently getting most of his spelling words right and that is finally translating into his writing!  This will be the first year he wont bomb the spelling section of testing and to say this mom is happy would be a colossal understatement!

Why a Spelling Dictionary?

Not so long ago I wondered why in the world I would need a printable spelling dictionary when I had a very nice, complete printed dictionary I bought on Amazon. If you too are wondering why, let me explain.

Kids misspell a lot of word in elementary school. It’s normal! But they key to learning to spell words correctly is lots of practice spelling words correctly. But when you have children consistently looking up every word they misspell in the dictionary, kids can get frustrated and begin to hate spelling.

A Spelling Dictionary is a mini book that lists only the words your student has trouble spelling. 

Instead of hunting through thousands of words repeatedly, they can write words in their spelling dictionary that are hard for them. Then when they need help spelling they just check their handy, dandy word list and can start writing the words correctly.

Consistent practice spelling words correctly is what is going to help your child be a “good” speller.
