This is the lesson plan for Commonly misspelled words. It's a bundle of some of the separate worksheets listed in my store. (This bundle saves you $0.50. and fills an entire class period.)
One of the sheets included in this bundle is a breakdown of the actual lesson.
This first worksheet is a list of commonly misspelled words; it contains 29 different words, including "there/their/their", "your/you're", and "where/were/we're". It has two sides, one with the words, one practice side.
The first side is divided into three columns: the first gives the word (with its part of speech); the second gives tips/explanations on how the word works; the last column gives an example sentence with the word.
The second side is a practice side, containing 18 sentences. Each sentence has one or two blanks as well as a multiple choice set of answers. Of course, students must choose the correct word.
The second worksheet is the dictation exercise. There are two separate exercises, and an answer key is provided for you.
Here's how this sheet works: The students are given the sheets with two paragraphs, and each paragraph has words missing. You'll read the paragraph, including the missing words (from the answer key), and they'll have to write the correct spelling of the word (such as, "there", "their", or "they're").
Going through this entire bundle will take at least an entire 50 minute period, maybe more if your class is slower paced or you have to spend more time explaining things.
