Third Grade Spelling Words

Why is it important to learn to spell?

There's plenty of research that supports the central role that spelling plays in learning to read and write proficiently. Learning to write individual letters and spell words reinforces the phonemic and word-deciphering skills kids require in developing literacy. From an early age of learning to identify letters and phonics, to the later development in vocabulary to the skills needed to develop reading comprehension, these skills are greatly improved through creating text - of which spelling plays a vital part.
