All About Our Spelling Worksheets
While we could not find a single study available that in some confounded way links spelling ability to intelligence, this is often in the back everyone’s mind in the real world. In today’s world misspellings are more a sense of carelessness or not paying attention to detail. There are countless tools that we can use to check our work before we share it with others.
