´╗┐Teacher Winnie stands in front of a smart board.

Teacher Winnie is in her twenties, with straight brown hair in a half do. She wears glasses and a blue Homework Zone T-shirt.

She says HI, I'M
TEACHER WINNIE,
AND TODAY ON
THE
HOMEWORK ZONE,
I'M GOING
TO SHOW YOU SOME
SPELLING TIPS
AND TRICKS.
LET'S GO TO
THE SMARTBOARD.
SO, WHEN WE DO A
SPELLING TEST
OR WHEN WE HAVE
A SPELLING LIST
WE WANT TO
REMEMBER,
THERE'S TWO
WAYS THAT WE CAN
MAKE IT
EASIER.
NOW THE FIRST
WAY I LIKE TO TELL
MY STUDENTS IS TO
COVER AND WRITE
THE WORDS.
SO, LET'S LOOK
AT OUR
SPELLING LIST
AND I'LL SHOW
YOU WHAT I
MEAN.
SO, FIRST WE HAVE
OUR SPELLING LIST,
AND I'M JUST GOING
TO HAVE
FIVE SHORT WORDS,
AND THERE'S A LIST.
"MORNING," "FROM,"
"PARTNER,"
"AREN'T,"
AND "STORE."
SO, THE FIRST THING
WE WANT TO DO
IS
COVER AND WRITE.
SO, WE MIGHT WANT
TO COVER IT
FOR A BIT AND
TRY TO SEE IF WE
CAN REMEMBER
WHAT IT SAYS.
SO, I KNOW
THE FIRST ONE WAS
MORNING, SO I'M
GOING TO TRY.
OKAY, SO I
COVERED IT, AND
THEN I'M GOING TO
CHECK TO SEE
IF
I'M RIGHT.
OH YEAH, THAT'S
EXACTLY HOW
WE
SOUND IT.
THE NEXT WORD I WANT
TO READ AGAIN,
"FROM," AND THEN
I MIGHT GO "FROM."

She writes down "form."

She says THEN, I MIGHT WANT
TO GO BACK,
AND GO, "OH WAIT,
THAT'S NOT RIGHT;
THAT'S NOT HOW I
SPELL IT."
SO, WE WANT TO
MAKE SURE WHEN WE
DO THE "COVER
AND WRITE,"
WE CHECK
OURSELVES AND WE
MAKE SURE WE FIX
ANY MISTAKES,
SO NOW I
KNOW IT'S ALWAYS
SUPPOSED TO BE
THE "R."
IN FRONT
OF THE "O."
THAT HELPS US FIX
OUR MISTAKES.
SO,
COVER AND WRITE.
NOW, ANOTHER TRICK
WE WANT TO DO
AFTER THAT, IS
"COVER AND SPELL."
WHEN WE COVER
AND SPELL,
WE JUST WANT TO
COVER THE WHOLE THING.
THERE'S NO PEEKING
THIS TIME
AND THERE'S
NO LOOKING AT
WHAT WE WROTE
BEFORE,
AND NOW WE JUST
WANT TO ASK A FRIEND,
MAYBE TO ASK US THE
QUESTION OR
TO SAY THE
WORDS OUT LOUD.
SO, I MIGHT WANT TO
ASK A PARENT
OR A SISTER
OR A BROTHER,
AND IF THEY SAY,
"SPELL 'MORNING'."
SO NOW, YOU JUST
HAVE TO SOUND
IT OUT
IN YOUR HEAD.
TRY TO WRITE
"MOR-NING."
AND THEY
MIGHT SAY,
"SPELL THE WORD
'FROM'."
NOW, FROM
PRACTICING WRITING
AND COVERING IT, I
KNOW MY "R" GOES
BEFORE
MY "O."
SO NOW, I
KNOW HOW TO WRITE
THE WORD
"FROM."
SO, THAT'S ANOTHER
FUN WAY TO HELP YOU.
IT HELPS YOUR BRAIN
AND YOUR HAND
REMEMBER HOW TO
WRITE THESE WORDS.
YOU WANT TO DO THAT
FOR ALL THE
REST OF
THE WORDS,
ALL FIVE OF THEM
IF YOU HAVE THEM
OR IF YOU
HAVE 15 WORDS,
AND BY DOING THE
"COVER AND WRITE,"
YOU CAN REPEAT IT
OVER AND OVER.
SO, IF YOU
ALREADY DID THIS
AND THEN YOU ASK A
FAMILY MEMBER TO
COVER AND SPELL
FOR YOU AND THEY
DID AND YOU STILL
GET IT WRONG,
YOU MIGHT WANT
TO REPEAT AND GO
BACK TO THE FIRST
ONE AND WRITE
IT
OUT AGAIN.
SO, THE MORE YOU
WRITE IT OUT
AND THE MORE
YOU PRACTICE
SPELLING IT OUT,
THE BETTER
YOUR
SPELLING WILL BE.
IT'S NOT REALLY A
QUICK TIP BUT
IT'S A GREAT
WAY TO HELP YOU
WITH YOUR SPELLING
WORDS.
SO, I'M
TEACHER WINNIE,
AND HERE ARE SOME FEW
TIPS AND TRICKS
FOR
SPELLING.
