PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun, easy, and fast activity great for utilizing 100% of your instructional time in a focused and productive way.

Each day, students view real-world examples of grammar and or spelling mistakes as depicted on street signs, billboards, or product labels. Students study the example and try to decipher what's not quite right with each sign.
I like to let students guess on their own, discuss with a partner or group, then volunteer their answers in whole-group before class dismissal.

This 41 page slideshow includes:
20 Real-World D.O.L. examples (4 weeks worth)
20 Pages explaining the errors and the reasoning behind their corrections. (One explanation page following each example)

Concepts covered: Spelling errors, sentence fragments, subject/verb agreement, contractions, singular and plural possessives, compound words, and homophones (It's/Its, your/your/you're, there/their/they're, patients/patience, accept/except, to/too, buy/bye, allowed/aloud, and toad/towed)
