Commonly Misspelled and Confused Words (Also Red Words)
Sometimes a word wall is not enough! These posters pay special attention to commonly misspelled and confused words. Using the handout master option would be an easy way to make flashcards.
Included are also six red word PowerPoint presentations. These presentations are simple and focus on how these non-phonetic words are spelled similar to Project Read directions. Used in whole group, small group, or individual lessons, the children read the word, spell the word aloud, then read the word one more time. A red slide separates each word from the others. Red words included are, the, to, have, said, of, was, you, what, are, put, should, would, could, they, your, Mr., Mrs., into, were, two, do, many, any, who, some, come, very, once, whose, here, from, live, where, whom, does, done, though, one, give, live, where, there, whom, thought, great, other, eye, mother, father, brother, beautiful, been.
