Product Description
A list of commonly misspelled words and grammar mistakes. Warning, some explanations are super sarcastic, so feel free to adjust depending on the age/level of students. But hey, a little humor is the only way you're going to get students to care about spelling there correctly!

For example:

Affect/effect
Affect- a verb that means to change
Ex: Turning in the outside reading project late will negatively affect your grade in a big way.

Effect- a noun that means the result or consequence of something
Ex: Yelling across the cafeteria had the effect the principal hoped it would—the seventh graders were clearly affected as they fell silent in terror.

A lot
Two words! You wouldn’t write “alittle,” so you cannot write “alot.”
Ex: It really annoys Mr. Puglisi a lot when his students write “alot” on their essays.


Can be used in conjunction with the following Word Crimes quiz:
