This two-part activity is a study of English words with tricky spellings, such as February and bouquet. The first set of thirty-three items focuses on everyday words that baffle us with their unusual letter combinations. The second portion, also with thirty-three items, features words that offer challenges with both their spellings and their less familiar definitions.
A resource list of 150+ more words with quirky spellings is included for those teachers who want to create another round or two of activities based on this idea.
These activities come with full answer keys.
