Mistaken Spelling Fun

Good spellers can write words different ways to find the right way.  This fun practice helps you learn the many different ways “sounds” are spelled in English while helping you learn the correct pattern for each of your words.

 

Directions:

Choose five different words (the base words are different) from your spelling list.  Write each word correctly twice.  Then write each word in as many different ways as it could be spelled phonetically, but isn’t. Box in the correct words. This exercise helps you learn all the possible spellings so you can learn to pick the correct one.  Use a dictionary, if necessary.

 

Examples:

 

exercise  exercise
exorsise  exorsize  exersighze  

Certain certain
 sertin  sertun surtin scurtin

Forcible forcible
forsible forsable phorsable phorscabel ghorscible

Efficient efficient
 ephishant uphishant eghitiant  ephiciant

Leaf leaf
 leef leiphe lleaphe   leif
