To me, three of these are obviously incorrect. I reached that conclusion on the basis of heuristics:
So with some experience and knowledge of English, you can and should develop heuristics. I would say three of the four are obvious misspellings. The only one that is harder to spot is "littel". I agree with Jim's comment that a person literate in English should be able to pick these. If someone is struggling with these, or at least three of the four, and does not have an impairment like dyslexia, they need to work and practise, and a teacher can't do that for a student.
Learning spelling isn't just a matter of memorizing huge word lists. Look for patterns. While English is notorious for inconsistent spelling, that does not mean there are no patterns at all, quite the opposite.
