Those who know how to read and choose not to are no better off than those who don't know how

MASTERY SPELLING LIST A-B-C

 


LIST A

These words are often misspelled because they do not follow the rules. But, they are very important because they are used in every sentence that you write!  Make a picture of the word in your mind as you study it.  Spell it out loud, if you are an auditory learner. Stop any time that you see the word written correctly in your reading.  That will help to fix it in your mind.
