About this teaching resource

This resource, Questions Parent Ask (Appendix B) is from the book Spelling K-8 by Diane Snowball and Faye Bolton.

Some of the questions parents ask are:

  • Why are children taught to spell in a different way from when we went to school?
  • Should children learn a list of words each week?
  • How do children learn how to spell?
  • If a child misspells a word many times, will he or she continue to spell incorrectly?
  • Should a child use a dictionary to find out how to spell a word?
  • Why don't teachers correct children's spelling mistakes?
  • Should spelling rules be taught?
  • How should children learn phonics?
  • How can parents help their children's spelling?
