Submitted by Emily Nichols on Tue, 2015-12-22 12:35

Literacy: Ww/E3.2, Wt/E3.4, Wt/L1.6, Ww/L1.1, Functional English - writing

Context: Voluntary & Charity

Level: E3, L1, L2

Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

A resource designed to be used with Abigail Illife’s excellent Plural Spelling rules resource [ see ‘See also’ below].

Learners can practise their proofreading skills and apply the spelling rules. Give learners the first sheet and ask them to highlight the mistakes. As well as spelling mistakes there are capital letters and the US spelling of centre.

Hand out the second sheet on which the mistakes are underlined so that they can mark themselves and check that they have spotted all the mistakes. Perhaps this could be printed on to A3 paper and stuck up on a board so learners can highlight the mistakes and the correct spellings can be discussed as a whole class.

Editor’s note
Lovely contextualised setting – a charity event for a local community centre.
