This project is 9 PowerPoints featuring 90 commonly misspelled words in student writing. The PowerPoints feature the word and a sentence demonstrating proper usage of the word. I have designed the PowerPoint based on a story and included photos.
Appendix A of the Common Core Standards states, "Key to students' vocabulary development is building rich and flexible word knowledge. Students need plentiful opportunities to use and respond to the words they learn through playful informal talk, discussion, reading or being read to, and responding to what is read. Students benefit from instruction about the connections and patterns in language."
In my classroom, we have completed numerous assignments to reinforce the correct spelling of these words. This PowerPoint features one of them. We create a story using as many of the words that we can. This is the demo that I show my students. They create their own story in a PowerPoint. The students also complete word work tasks, look up definitions, and play games with the words. I also add a few words a week to help the students learn the correct spelling.
I hope you find this project useful in your classroom.
