    Hi,
    Your sentence doesn't sound good with the blue words "tus" and "que" there.
    Can you write the english version so we can deduce what is best?

    It should be one of these:
    Escribe las palabras que necesitas deletrear tres veces.
    Escribe tus palabras, las que necesitas deletrear tres veces.
    Escribe las palabras que tienes que deletrear tres veces.

    Bye :)

    Maybe...

    Escribe cada una de las palabras de ortografía tres veces.

    Qué opinan?

    Viendo la frase en inglés, creo que esta es la traducción más apropiada.

    Hi,
    "Deletrear" means "to name every letter in a word in a right order". It has to do with orthography, but "spelling" seems to have a wider meaning.

    What are spelling words? Words to be spelled? Words that were misspelled? Words that belong to a spelling excercise?

    If there is no such "spelling words" in Spanish, I would suggest just:
    Escribe cada palabra correctamente tres veces.

    Bye ;)
