Spelling Words for Dictation:
Here are some tips to help you learn the spelling of these words:
1. Fiction: Break it down into syllables – fi-ction. Remember that “c” makes the /k/ sound. Practice writing it multiple times to reinforce the spelling.
2. Filling: Pay attention to the double “l” in the middle. It helps to write it slowly, saying each letter as you write. Remember to double the “l” to show the short vowel sound.
3. Finding: Start by identifying the “find” part, then add “-ing” at the end. Remember to double the “n” to show the short vowel sound.
4. Fitness: Break it down into syllables – fit-ness. Pay attention to the double “s” in the middle. Practice writing it and saying each letter out loud.
5. Forever: Break it down into syllables – for-ever. Remember that “e” in the second syllable makes the /e/ sound. Practice writing it multiple times to reinforce the spelling.
6. Fortune: Pay attention to the “t” in the middle and the “e” at the end. Remember that “u” makes the /oo/ sound in this word. Practice writing it and saying each letter out loud.
7. Founder: Start by identifying the “found” part, then add “-er” at the end. Remember to double the “d” to show the short vowel sound.
8. Freedom: Break it down into syllables – free-dom. Pay attention to the double “e” in the first syllable. Practice writing it and saying each letter out loud.
Remember to study these words regularly, practice writing them, and say each letter as you write. You can also ask someone to dictate these words to you so you can practice spelling them correctly. Good luck, and keep up the great work!
