More Spelling Mnemonics
A fourth grade teacher (unfortunately I have no name other than C4mn19 from the e-mail address) has contacted us to explain how to overcome the difficulties of getting young children to correctly use there, they're and their / hear, here / to, two, too.
She reminds them that there is a place just like here. So when they want to use "there" to talk about a place it should have "here" in it. "They're" is used when they want to say they are. That part isn't much of a mnemonic but if they remember the here/there it at least eliminates a choice.
She then reminds them that when they want to use hear that has to do with listening which they do with their ear - the correct one has hear in it.
To help with to, too and two she suggests that when you want to say too much or too meaning also, you write some extra o's.
This teacher explains that these tricks aren't catchy but
they do work. That is an important point because as long as
it works, who cares if it sounds "right". So thank you very
much to C4mn19 for her contribution. If you have any
mnemonics that are suitable for children please do send
