Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check

Using 'Look, say, cover, write and check' can help you to remember how to spell words that you find difficult.

Look at the shape of the word. Can you see any patterns or groups of letters that go together? Are there any words within words?

Say the words carefully and slowly to yourself. Try to listen for the sounds ini the words.

Cover the word. Try to picture the word in your mind, closing your eyes might help you ro do this. Say the word to yourself again and then...

Write the word down.

Check to see if it is correct. If the word isn't quite right, don't worry, just try again. It can often take a few attempts to get it right.
