ESL, SPED, Gen ED Vocabulary: 100 Commonly Misspelled Words

ESL, SPED, Gen ED Vocabulary: 100 Commonly Misspelled Words

In these days of texting and Instagram, it's easy for students to make spelling mistakes on even the most basic of English words. In this respect, things have not changed much in the last fifty years, when the National Curriculum Association evaluated the writing of third-eighth graders across the country and compiled a list of the 100 most commonly misspelled words in student writing. This list includes words that have unusual spellings, as well as words that are commonly confused (like "their" and "there"). After my students have learned basic English verbs and nouns, I give my ESL Newcomers twelve or thirteen of these most commonly misspelled words in the English language each week for eight weeks. I ask them to translate the words into their home language, copy each word three times, create a sentence, illustrate three of the words, complete a word search and do a fill-in-the –blank activity. These activities can be assigned as classwork or homework throughout the week. We also do a quick review of the words each day before going on to our lesson, and, at the end of the week, we take a spelling test using the words. By the time we are finished, my students have been exposed to, and tested over, 100 words that are often misspelled by beginning writers. This product contains eight weeks' worth of vocabulary lists, activities, and daily reviews/ bellwork, along with a reproducible for the weekly quiz. Although it was orginally created for use in an ESL classroom, it gives students at all fluency and ability levels a chance to review tricky words and spellings. ******************** Do you want the homework and and center activities without the daily review activities?

Silent Letters Wordsearch English Spelling Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Silent Letters Wordsearch English Spelling Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Silent Letters'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

HOMOPHONES TEST

HOMOPHONES TEST

The aim of this PowerPoint file is to test pupils' knowledge of Homophones. All of the words used in these tests are commonly misspelt or confused with other similar-sounding words. There are two versions, in the first the pupil simply has to choose from the two words alongside each definition. The second version is a little more demanding as the choice needs to be made from a randomly-sorted list of homophones.
