Strategies for Learning Correct Spelling and Definitions

*Try chunking the word into syllables
*Use different colors to mark the syllables
*Box in each syllable
*Capitalize B and D to avoid reversals
*Highlight every other syllable with a second color

*Use silly diagrams to remember the meaning
*Tape record the word. Let the tape run blank about 15 seconds, and then tape record the definition. This will provide immediate feedback.
*Create word lists of terms only (no definitions...have the correct information
nearby)
*Change paper color or ink color for different words, vocabulary lists
