FROM THE BLOG: ALL ABOUT LEARNING PRESS

Should I correct my child’s spelling mistakes right away?

This is actually a great question that is often raised by concerned moms and dads in relation to spelling dictation exercises.


After all, correcting your child’s errors right away seems like it should always be the right thing to do, doesn’t it?


In fact, one school of thought sometimes promoted is that the picture of an incorrectly spelled word should never get imprinted on your child’s mind. The idea is that if a child starts to write a wrong letter, the error should be corrected right away so that the child never sees or writes a word incorrectly.
