3. Spelling Mnemonics
A mnemonic is a memory aid –
something that helps you remember things.
Let's try the word 'accommodation'
Think of two people with the initials
CC
and
MM
sharing accommodation:

C
heerful
C
harlie and
M
ad
M
ick

Make
cc
into
C
heerful
C
harlie's eyes and
mm
into
M
ad
M
ick's eyebrows.

You will never again forget to put
cc
and
mm
in a
cc
o
mm
odation.
When you invent a mnemonic, draw it also; this helps to fix it in your memory.
1. Words within words
Now let's try these spelling techniques...
Separate - there is a rat in sepa
rat
e.
Piece -
pie
ce of pie.
Enterprise
Explore
Accelerate
Prosper
Celebrate
There are lots of ways of learning how words are spelt and of making sure that all words are spelt correctly in your finished piece of writing. Below are some spelling techniques for you to use in improving your spelling!
You could...
Use a dictionary or the electronic spell-checker;
Practise writing down the word;
Make a reminder on a 'post-it';
Use the "look, say, cover, write, check" method;
Photograph the word;
Break up the word into syllables;
Look for words within words;
Make up your own reminders (mnemonics);
Sound out silent letters;
Learn a spelling rule, e.g. "i" before "e" except after "c" in words like niece and ceiling..
2. Breaking up the word into syllables
Consonant splits into con - so - nant
Excellent splits into ex - cell - ent
Unhappiness splits into un - hap - pi - ness
Organise - The organ cupboard is very
organ
ised
Could you come up with your own spelling mnemonic?
Remember to include pictures and possibly some tongue twisters.
Here is your task...
Bargain - when you get a bar
gain
you
gain
.
Beautiful -
b
ig
e
lephants
a
