This useful tool is a great way to help students with their spelling especially during writing time. Simply download, print, and make copies, then have your students store a copy in their writing folder. When students need help spelling a word they can put the word in their Writer's Dictionary. That way, when it comes time for writing rough drafts and final copies students will know where to look for the correct spelling of words that they commonly use. You might also start the year by having students fill in a few commonly misspelled words so that they get the idea of the dictionary. A great way to give students more ownership over their spelling.
