As with their English spellings the emphasis is on developing their ability to spell based on phonics. Thankfully Irish is a more rules following phonetically based spelling system, with less exceptions than English, and learning to link letter combinations to phonemes and syllables yields great results.
Don't worry if your child isn't sure of the meaning of every word or able to put them in explanitory sentences. However, if they are finding the spelling easy going please do go the extra distance and help them learn the main meaning of each word.
