For grade 8 with no upper limit, this interactive Power Point game, in the spirit of the Family Feud, tackles the more stubborn mistakes students of all ages make over and over again.
Feel free to print out all 21 of the "answer" slides, all quite beautiful, and use as "reminder" posters long after the game has been played. Alternately, instead of playing all 21 questions at once, do one a day or one a week.
After you are done, the application exercises follow the presentation. Just download and print the five exercises! Teacher key and grading guide is included, of course! Click on the PREVIEW to see more.
People have told me that even at the corporate level some folks still have problems with some of these troublesome words:
ought to/ oughta/ outta
Till, 'til, until
supposably and supposively instead of supposedly
brang and brung
and much more!
Also included at the end are other writing issues - excessive informality, wordiness, and "text-spelling."
With the Power Point, the handout, the exercises and keys, you receive a total of 62 pages, all packaged together. This is a very useful activity that can be used for up to two to 4 class periods. If you laminate the 8.5 X 11 answer slides, the lessons your students have learned will BEAUTIFY your CLASSROOM, and LAST the year through!!
