Spelling the days of the week, months and seasons
Some of these words are difficult to spell. Here are some spelling strategies. Which one works for
Tip: days of the week and months always start with a capital letter, eg January, Thursday.
Look for hidden words.
There's an ember in
September, November
and December.
Sound out the word as it is spelt not as it sounds,
eg Wed NES day
Jan U A ry.
Think about related words where you can hear silent
letters. The letter n is silent in autumn, but you can
hear it in autumnal.
Come up with a mnemonic (memory aid) to
help you remember,
eg it is br, cold in February.
Use look, say, cover, write, and check to learn words.
For example:
Look at the word Wednesday.
Say the word Wednesday out loud.
Cover it up.
Write down the word.
Check your spelling. Is it correct? If not, have another go.
