Using Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check

Now what are the benefits to this spelling strategy?

Firstly, the technique is pretty self-explanatory. Your child needs to look at the word, say it, cover the word up so they can visualise in their mind how it is spelt, then write and check if they have spelt it correctly.

By using this technique, students are not just able to work on their writing skills — they’re able to practise their verbal and reading skills by saying the words aloud.

With the English language, a lot of words may sound different to the literal spelling of the word, because of all the different rules we have, such as silent letters, homophones, and so on! So it’s definitely important to practise saying words while also reading and writing them.

Writing and checking also allows room for improvement, and recognising when mistakes are made with the spelling of words.

NAPLAN Preparation

Next year, your child will be sitting their NAPLAN tests for the first time! If you aren’t too familiar with what’s involved in NAPLAN, your child will basically be assessed on their skills in:

  • Reading & Writing
  • Language Conventions
  • Numeracy

For more information on how the tests work, you can check out our guide here!

Within the Language Conventions portion of NAPLAN, your child will be assessed on their spelling ability. Questions will involve identifying and correcting errors in simple words.

For example, this is what one of the questions from a past NAPLAN test looked like:

Year 3 NAPLAN Spelling

By using our Year 2 Spelling Words Worksheets, your child will get more exposure to correcting any errors they make when working through the sheets.
