Spelling Tricky Words

Tips for Remembering How to Spell Tricky Words


When I was in high school, I was on the newspaper staff and had a unique teacher that left a lasting impression on my life. She seemed to care about her students and wanted to help them become all that they could in life.

In addition to writing and editing the newspaper, Mrs. Troup made sure that she covered basic language arts skills. One of the things she taught was spelling tricks for some of the tricky words in the English language. These tips have stuck with me all these years.

I want to pass these tips on to you for your children, as well as give you the opportunity to share the spelling tips and tricks you've learned over the years. Your tips will be added to this list.
