This PowerPoint slideshow will help your students identify errors in sentences. All thirty errors are fully explained: spelling errors and the rules that words follow, confusion between words that sound alike (homophones), compound words and irregularly spelled words. Each sentence is based on a funny .gif image and the entire slideshow is fully animated (just click on the arrow to advance to the next slide). This lesson is perfect for whole-class instruction, and you can place it on student-computers for independent review.
Students will tackle words such as niece, leprechaun, enormous, unfamiliar, dictionary, mimic, tomatoes, cache, astronaut, lunar, mariachi, and more.
Take a look at the Preview to see some of the slides in this slideshow.
