Learn how to spell fruits!

What is it

  • Writing activity to learn spelling the names of different fruits

  • Fading prompts by alphabet to encourage independence in spelling

Teaching Objectives

  • Develop pencil grip

  • Trace names of fruits

  • Learn the spelling of fruits

How to use

  • Get your child to label the picture of the fruit 

  • Encourage your child to read the word before tracing 

  • If your child is still learning to trace letters, prompt your child by using a hand over hand prompt to trace and slowly reduce the hand holding pressure to reduce assistance. 

  • Recite each letter with your child as he or she is tracing it

  • Have your child read the word again once he is done writing the word

Teaching tips

  • Use a thick or triangular pencil to help your child hold the pencil with a tripod grip

  • Use 3D alphabet letters to form the words to practise spelling in a fun way

Embed more learning opportunities

  • Spelling game: Present a picture of a fruit and get your child to spell it. Take turns with your child and have fun together!

  • Listening activity: Get your child to listen to the word that you are spelling out. (e.g. What fruit is this? A-P-P-L-E)
