Task 1


Strategies for learning words:

Kinaesthetic and visual strategies for learning common exception words


Pick ten of the words from the common exception words list (below) and practise memorising them by writing the words in different ways. For example…


  • In the air – with one hand, both hands, a little finger or a foot
  • On someone’s back with your finger
  • On the palm of your hand
  • In a sand tray or anything similar that you can find!


Which way was your favourite? Did it help you remember the word without looking?
