Writing words is a skill that should be trained to students, especially the kindergarten students. As they were in the beginning of writing, they would write letters that they know or memorize. Some of them might be able to recognize the sounds and the letters that enabled them to write independently, while others who were learning to recognize letters find writing really frustrating. Therefore, it was important for the teachers to bridge the problem so that the students improved in their writing. The study would like to see whether the students’ spelling achievement improved after having the spelling practice. According to Barrett, the students could learn better when the teacher combines the teaching of spelling with phonics. Moreover, the teacher might create many opportunities and vary the activities to get the students’ attention so they could develop their vocabulary and their creativity through exploration, testing, and investigating. The subjects were thirty students of Kindergarten B in the academic year of 2013/2014 of X School between the ages of five to six years old. They had the pre-test before the lesson of the long vowel sounds was given. After all of the lesson, they did the post-test. Based on the findings, there was a significant improvement in students’ spelling achievement from the pre-test and post-test after having the spelling practice.
