Making a Spelling Log
This book gives you a place to keep word lists of your own.
It’s called a SPELLING LOG! You can make your own Spelling
Log. See page 101.
While you read, look for words that are INTERESTING.
Listen for NEW WORDS used by people on radio and television.
Include words that you need to use when you WRITE, especially
words that are hard to spell.
Before you write a word in your Spelling Log, check the spelling.
Look up the word in a DICTIONARY, or ask for help.
To help you understand and remember the meaning of a word,
write a DEFINITION or draw a picture. Use your word in a
sentence.

Spelling Strategies
Let us show you some of our favorite
spelling strategies!
Here’s a tip that helps me spell a word. I say the word. Then I
picture the way it is spelled. Then I write it!
When I’m learning how to spell a word, the Study Steps to
Learn a Word are a big help. See page 2.
I think of ways to spell the vowel sound in a word. Then I
try different spellings.
When I don’t know how to spell a word, I sometimes just take
my best guess! Then I check it.
Sometimes I look up a word in a dictionary. Sometimes I just
ask someone how to spell it.

I proofread my work twice. First, I circle words I know are
misspelled. Then, I look for words I’m not sure of.
When I write a word that is a homophone, I make sure the word
makes sense in the sentence.
When I’m writing a compound word, I think about how the
two smaller words are spelled.
Sometimes thinking of a rhyming word helps me figure out how
to spell a word. Both words may belong in the same word family.
When I need to spell contractions, I think about which letters
have been left out. That’s where I put the apostrophe.
I think about spelling rules, such as how to change a word’s
spelling before adding s or es.
