Instructional Ideas
  • Challenge pupils to also identify what exactly is wrong in each post; for example, they can label sentence fragments, punctuation issues, and spelling errors
  • Invite learners to find a few school-appropriate social media posts that are full of errors and edit these as a class
Classroom Considerations
  • Since the posts are real, they contain real-life situations; for example, one talks about divorce
  • These posts include examples of many common grammar and spelling errors for kids to puzzle through
  • Find a second worksheet in the materials tab that includes six more real posts to edit
