Product Description
Great seatwork! Word discrimination is key to comprehension and to good writing. This exercise demonstrates to students that rushing as they read or write can result in serious (but, in this case, funny) misunderstandings. Please see preview page.
Students read a silly sentence and look for the word in which just one letter (the vowel), placed incorrectly, has changed the entire meaning of the sentence. Using context clues, the student changes the vowel to what was obviously intended. They then rewrite the sentence, underlining the word (easy for teacher to grade).
Included: Student page, Teacher Answer Key, and Teacher Page of Instructions / EXAMPLE to do with class: " When I tore my new pants, Mom got mud." (Change the 'u' in mud to an 'a' for mad.)
Students enjoy this lesson, and it improves word discrimination, while giving practical examples of the confusion that careless mistakes can cause.
**This is also a good activity for those little whiz kids who always finish early and need a challenge, or for Reading/Literature Center work.
