about

"My Kid Can't Spell" is a readable and accessible handbook for parents who want to play a more active role in their children's reading, writing, and spelling development. Spelling, after all, impacts virtually every aspect of reading and writing, and it is the key to unlocking literacy. But helping your child with spelling can be confusing. When is the right time to correct misspelled words? How can you help your child move to the next level of development? What are the important underlying concepts to reinforce?

Spelling expert J. Richard Gentry offers timely and practical solutions to many of the problems parents of K-8 children face. The book is packed with tools, guidelines, and strategies that parents can immediately use, including:

  • development guideposts to track children's literacy
  • tips for helping children progress through early spelling stages
  • a spelling test to determine children's level of spelling
  • strategies to help children visualize words
  • guidelines for identifying poor spelling instruction at school
  • ways to recognize if a child has a spelling disability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great resource for teachers and parents alike! Wonderful book! Very concise . This book provides the reader with a listing of words that each child should be able to spell (both sight words and phonetic) by the end of certain grades. As a teacher, it's helpful to use these lists for quizzes initially at the beginning of the year to help assess where student spelling weaknesses may lie. I always recommend this book to parents of my students. Great book to add to any collection of teaching resources.
