Writing, spelling and Phonics in English for Kids – Fun Tricky Word Activity

There are those “tricky” words in the English dictionary and language which we should stress a little bit on. These words might be pronounced differently even when the attention is given to phonics and how the letters should be pronounced in general, and thus it might be difficult for the kids to pronounce them correctly at the beginning and before they get used to the whole thing.

In this educational video, the main focus is on those words which are considered tricky when it comes to how they are pronounced and which help the kids to spell them correctly and at the same time help them to write these letters down.

Using the white colour crayon and the paint mixed with water is the main focus behind this creative method in teaching the kids the English language. The parent will use the white crayon to write down some tricky words on a piece of paper so that the kid could not see them, and then the kid will use the paint and move over the paper trying to reveal these words. When the kids reveal the written words and turn this magical game on, they will then need to spell these words correctly before they move forward to the next step.

After making sure that the kids are good at spelling the words you have written for them, the next step should then be followed and which is all about reversing the places and letting the kid write down a specific word several times on the paper while the parent is not looking and then the parent be the one trying to find the words.

Repetition is important because that’s how the kids learn and manage to remember the things they are learning. Choosing these creative, fun, and magical learning methods will also keep the kids excited and thus will always make them look forward to repeating all by themselves, which also happens when parents leave the kids to be the ones leading the way.

Using this method proved to be both successful and interesting when it was about teaching the kids the English letters and how to write them down, we have tried that with the letter “L’ and the kids loved writing these hidden letters down on the paper and then work the magic with their parents while they are finding them out with the paint (Learning English).

Through our long experience in teaching kids, we have found out that kids don’t like the simple lessons when they are boring, but they love those which they could enjoy learning while they are playing and at the same time leading a challenge, which is the thing happening in this video – when James was the one taking the lead, he gave orders and was learning very well when it came to reading the letters, spelling them, and writing them down.

There are lots of different ways in which kids could depend to learn the English alphabet and know how to write down the letters, and these change according to the method or object used, such as Play-Doh, Lego pieces, paints and colours, etc.

Generally speaking, when it comes to learning the English alphabet, there are different ways that this could happen through, it could be through singing the ABC nursery rhyme at the beginning (Learn the Alphabet), it could happen through letting the kids bring out words that start with every single letter in the alphabet (Learn the Alphabet for Kids) and it could also happen through the different games that could be played to bring such results as the one we experienced in this video.
