You are one step away from improving spelling
Why learn to spell if the computer will do it?
Common spelling errors can lead the reader to make a judgment of the intelligence of the writer, and also of his attention to detail. Spelling is one of the first assessments of one’s work that students receive upon entering school.
Students quickly learn who the “good” spellers are in their class, receiving 100 percent each time, and who the poor spellers are with red marks all over their pages. Earning 100 percent on every spelling test is possible for all students. This success helps build the student’s confidence in their learning ability and gives them a positive attitude toward learning. Students who practice spelling words only to fail each week’s test learn that trying hard does not lead to success, but only to frustration.
