Each of the sentences below contains at least one spelling error that has been made by a student in the class during this school year. Find the error(s), then rewrite the sentence without errors on the first line provided. Be sure to proofread your work to ensure that you havenít made any spelling, capitalization or punctuation errors.
Circle each "wrong word" error you find. (A "wrong word" error is a correctly spelled word used incorrectly in the sentence.) Use the circled word in a correctly written sentence on the second line beneath the sentence in which it was incorrectly used.
