Spelling November 17th-21st (commonly misspelled words)

Dear Parents, In spite of the fact students do well on their spelling tests, I have noticed that many are misspelling common everyday words. That will be our focus this week. Students will be given these sentences and expected to spell each bolded word correctly.

1) Their house is different from ours, because of the color.
2) Once again, you’re late.
3) We really want you to know that you were invited to our house.
4) There you are again, looking through the window.
5) That’s our favorite place to eat because they have different kinds of food.
6) Finally, we went through the tunnel.
7) Until, you know that something is true, don’t believe what you hear.
8) They know it’s really true.
