This 12 page packet is designed to help students in grades 3 through 6 identify and master some of the most frequently confused, misspelled, and misused words in the English language:
lose - loose
then - than
accept - except
it's - its
your - you're
effect - affect
there - their - they're
past - passed
Included in the packet is a handy booklet called Write it Right!, which lists each word, its definition, and its part of speech, along with examples of the word's proper usage in a sentence. It's a great resource for students to keep in their desks and use all year long!
In addition, I've included 8 fill-in-the-blank worksheets for students to practice using the words correctly. Answer keys to each worksheet are provided.
TO ASSEMBLE THE BOOKLET: Have students glue the cover page and insert page back to back, then fold in the middle. If you like, you can add more "problem" words on the back cover before making copies.
