Practice or practise?

    That is a tricky one. You do your piano practice but you practise the piano (or spelling). Personally, I'd use practice because it is a thing you want them to do. However, you are using the imperative form of the verb, which is perfectly acceptable too.

    Practise = verb
    I must practise my spelling.
    Practice = noun
    I need more practice at spelling tricky words.

    The same rule applies to 'advise' and 'advice'
