Extra Letter Spelling

Extra Letter Spelling Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a spelling activity designed for fourth-grade students to identify and correct words with extra letters. The worksheet contains a list of ten words where some may have extraneous letters included. Students are asked to indicate with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ whether the word listed has extra letters, and then, on the second line, they are to write the word correctly, omitting any unnecessary characters. To complete the exercise, students must choose the word they found most challenging and write it again, reinforcing their learning.

The worksheet aims to develop the students’ spelling accuracy and attention to detail by having them identify unnecessary letters in words. It teaches them to scrutinize words carefully, which is an essential skill for proofreading and editing their own work. The activity also encourages students to apply their understanding of standard word spellings and to practice writing words correctly. By focusing on the word they struggled with, students can further improve their grasp on particularly difficult spellings. You are given a series of ten spelling words that have extra letters in them. Remove all of the letters to spell the words correctly.
