Wow! It seems I fall off the grid when it comes to blogging! I really need to update this much more often than I do. It's been a work in progress with my students this semester.
The thing that astounded me the most was when I gave them a quiz, and they were required to write a sentence using "sale" and a second sentence using "sail" -- yes we were working on homophones, and yes these are ninth graders. I got papers back saying "I have to sale my Ipod" or "I sale my car to pay my bill". I was flabbergasted! I immediately launched into a mini-lesson, and to my surprise, students fought me on the correct way to use sale. It seemed someone had drilled it into their minds that "I sale my car" was the proper way to do it. What is your take on this?!
In other news, I have permanently reduced my prices on TeacherPayTeachers! I currently have 19 products in my store and more to come! Please visit my store, purchase some products, I promise, you won't regret it!
