English Homework:
Elephant Spellings

©1998 Gareth Pitchford

It can be quite difficult to learn spellings. Sometimes people use tricks to help them remember how to spell certain words.

One trick is to make up a little rhyme using the letters of the word that you are trying to learn.

For example,

Big Elephants Can Always Understand Small Elephants.

If you can remember the rhyme then you'll always know how to spell because!

Think of some words that you find hard to spell. Try and see if you can make up a rhyme to help you remember the spelling.

It doesn't matter how silly your rhyme is, as long as you remember it!

Write your rhyme down and bring it into school.
