SPELLING Why is Spelling Important? It is important to spell words correctly when writing. There are some words that are difficult to learn and to remember how to spell correctly. Homonyms, plurals, and possessive words are often difficult to remember how to spell correctly. Homonyms Spelling homonyms may not be difficult, but knowing which word to use when may be! Homonyms are words that sound the same but have different meanings. Examples: sent I sent a letter to my pen pal. scent The scent of the skunk smelled terrible. write I had to write a report for school. right I am right-handed. poor I am poor; I have no money. pour I helped pour the lemonade into the glasses. pear I wanted to eat a pear for snack. pair I bought a pair of running shoes. to I went to the mall. Too Randy hit a homerun and Marcus did too. Two I own two basketballs. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.

Plural Words Plural words are words that mean more than one of something. More than one book = books More than one card = cards Some plural words are tricky to spell: More than one goose = geese More than one man = men More than one library = libraries More than one tooth = teeth Possessive Words Possessive words show ownership. Examples: Steve’s bike (the bike belongs to Steve) The teacher’s bag (the bag belongs to the teacher) When you are talking about more than one person, such as girls, and are showing ownership of something, like uniforms, the apostrophe goes AFTER the s. Example: The girls’ uniforms (the uniforms belong to the girls) © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
