Red words must be learned individually. Unfortunately they often give students of trouble, especially those students who are already having difficulty in reading and spelling. A multi-sensory approach, using the association of the visual, the auditory and the kinesthetic, is a good way to teach red words to all children. Rather than guess at the spelling, explicitly teaching students red words and having them
practice, practice, practice and holding them accountable once a word is taught help students achieve more success in reading and spelling.
