Why proofread when Spellcheck does it for you? Well, Spellcheck doesn't catch every mistake. Sometimes it doesn't catch any.
Kids ( and most grown-ups) are in the habit of letting spell check do their proofreading. These letters are perfect according to spell check. Proof the examples yourself and write a new one of your own. It's harder than you think!
When you can’t write because you’re out of ideas try playing
A GAME FOR TWO OR MORE TO PLAY WITH YOUR TEACHER
Move quickly from one player to another without thinking time in-between.
It usually goes something like this:
After each player invents a character, give them a back story with personality traits, and saddle them with a problem.
Stop the game and write your own ending. Read the new endings aloud.
