Worksheet Overview

pencil correcting grammar


Making sure you spell correctly is really important.


Incorrectly spelt words can stop your reader from understanding what you mean. It is super common for people to make mistakes when they are writing without even noticing - this is why we recommend you proofread your work every time.


People often use the spellchecker on a computer to help them, but we need to know how we can become our own spellchecker!


In this activity, you will see some commonly misspelt words and find ways to remember how to spell them in the future. You might also be able to stretch the vocabulary you use and really challenge yourself as a writer!
