Yesterday, my second year students had a 100 word spelling test. They had a little over three weeks learn the words, but all the words they had studied their first year of Jr. high school. After the exam, I offered to correct the tests for the teacher, who seemed really happy to have me do that.
Now, I know what you are all thinking. 100 words?! That’s a lot. However, these are words that are used almost everyday including the months of the year and how to spell teacher and other easy words.
I am a terrible speller – ask my parents. I am sure I have spelled many things wrong in my blog. I am a phonetic speller, which does not bode well with the English language. Still, some of these spellings my students came up with are not even close to phonetic. I wish I could pop into their minds and see how they came up with these.
I’ll have the answers hidden, so you are going to have to highlight the empty space next to the misspelled word to see what the answer is.
I felt bad for laughing…but some of these were just too ridiculous!
