Go over most of the words you have learned throughout the year and ask your parents to try to go over them with you. In addition, you can scan through a dictionary and try to spot the most complicated spelled words. Try reviewing them and memorizing them. Also, study the origins of the words (etymology of the words). This will give you a quick hint of how likely a word is spelled. Moreover, learn the meaning of root word or prefixes. For instance the root word "logue"means word or thought and example English words that ends with logue are epilogue and dialogue.
