There are seven spelling mistakes in this postcard. Circle the
misspelled words. Write the words correctly on the lines below.
Dear Paula,
I told you I would send you a postcard! You sure do need to come here
next summer. We had so much fun on our family vacation. We would sit
on beaches that had sand the color of solid golde. The other penguins and I
would play on the beach, fowte in the water, and soke up the sun. At night
we would stay up late to listen to the singing of the whales while eating a big
boal of ice cream.
I am sad that we have to leave the coste in a few days and go home to
Antarctica. I hope there isn’t too much sno at home. I will shoe you pictures
when I get home.
See you soon,
Peter

This year I joined the dance teem at school. It’s been so much fun. We’ve
been practicing for a long time for our big show. I play the part of a butterfy.
I get to do one dance all by myself.
I can’t believe that it is just one weke away. The teachers helped us build
our stage outside on the soccer feeld. My mom made my costume. It’s dark
grean with pretty, colorful wings. Mom also fxed the loose heal of my shoe.
Mom and dad bought their tickets last week. My sister gets hers for frie

There are six spelling mistakes in the story. Circle the
misspelled words. Write the words correctly on the lines below.
One day a wolf went out in the woods for a walk. He was hungry
so he went looking for some lounch. He saw a dich along the path. He
decided to hide there to wait for a nice fat mouse to come along.
The wolf sat in the hole for a long time. He was tired of waching,
but he was still very hungry. Suddenly, he heard footsteps cruncing the
leaves on the path. He peeked out of the ditch and saw a little gray mouse
dragging a bag.
The wolf leapt out of the hole and stood in front of the little mouse.
Not very big, thought the wolf, but she will have to do. The mouse was
scared, but then she had an idea.
“How about some cheez?” she said to the wolf. She reached into her bag
and pulled out some cheese. The wolf looked at the large chunc of cheddar
that the little mouse offered and then at the tiny size of the mouse.
“Thank you,” said the wolf. “That would be great.”

Dear Joe,
I have to tell you about my trip to the coast last munth. We went out on
a boat to look for wales! It was quite an adventure. It made me very happy
because I want to study ocean life when I grow up.
The wether was nice when we set out, sunny and warm. We saw a lot of
fsch, which was fun. I took many notes. After we ate lunch, the sky got very
dark and it started to rain. The boat was big but it still rocked a lot in the
waves. To tell you the trouth, I was a little bit scared.
Then, we saw thiem: ten whales swimming in the distance. It was great.
When I get older, I want to learn more about these animals. Our guide
told me that I could study whales in college. When I get my photos back, I
will send you one.
Your friend,
Elizabeth

Dear Diary,
An author came to school today to tell us about the book she wroat. It
took her two years! It is about the many adventures of a nite. First, he is on a
ship. Then, he is captured by an evil band of robbers. In the end, he becomes
a king.
It is exciting to noe someone who is an author. I think I want to rit a book
when I grow up. It would be about something I love. Maybe it will be about
a lady who likes to nit pretty scarves and hats, just like my grandmother. Or
maybe it will be about about my pet dog. Who knows!
I will write more tomorrow,

Your drawings make so many people joieful. I wish I could do that!
Even my Uncle Bob, who never smiles, engues your drawings.
When did you decide to become an illustrator? What do you do every
day? Is it hard? Are there times when you toyel over a drawing for a long
time?
I think the best job for me would be one that I love. My poynt is that I
think I would be a good illustrator. Thanks for being my hero!
Sincerely,
Albert Martin

There are several ways to help take care of nature in your town. Write
to your sitti mayor about a pollution problem. This will tell him or her that
you are worried about the environment. You can raise money, too. Save your

plastic bottles. Buy a ginte can to put them in. When you have enough, take
them in for recycling. The most important thing you can do is this: Tell others
about keeping our world clean. Pass on this important mesaje to everyone you
know.

There are six spelling mistakes in this paragraph. Circle the
misspelled words. Write the words correctly on the lines below.
Melody and Melissa were tooins, but they couldn’t have been more
different. Melody loved picking daisys, arranging fowers, and playing with
her stuffed poonys. Melissa loved fis and insects and crawling around in the
dirt. The problem was that they shared a room. Melody liked the room to be
neat with boonchs of fowers in all the windows. Melissa was far from neat.
She tracked in mud and brought bugs into the room. It had been a problem
for many years. One day Melody decided that maybe she and Melissa should
divide the room in two. That way they could both get what they wanted.
Melissa thought it was a great idea. They hung a white sheet a few inshs
from the ceiling. Now Melody’s room is always beautiful, and Melissa’s
room is always messy. They are the happiest sisters around.

Dear Mr. Taylor,
I am writing to you for some advice on a business idea I had. I read about
your sports store in the nuespapper. You seem like sumone who could help me.
I had the idea one day while I was walking home. My feet were hurting
because I had been playing basckettebal bearfoot. My idea was to create a
mailing list of customers. With each name, you could also list the person’s
burthdea. Your store could use the list to send letters reminding your
customers to buy a new pair of shoes. You could even include a coupon!
Maybe you could sell the list to different stores in town. The barber shop
could send a coupon for a haredoe.
What do you think? If you are interested, please write to me.
Regards,
Josh Curtain

Our class is studieing dances performed by people around the world.
People dance for many reasons: to celebrate good things, to welcome
visitors, or just to have fun.
We watched videos of children who were plaing and dancing with their
friends. They tryed to jump as high and spin as fast as they could. It looked
like fun!
I like to dance, too. I take ballet lessons. I am almost always late for class.
Sometimes my tights have not dryed out from being washed. Other times I
am hurrieing to fnish my homework. My sister studys tap dancing. When I
get older, I will learn other kinds of dancing, too.

The Great Rescue
One Sonday afternoon my family went on a picnic. My mother packed
our lunch in a big bascett. We found a shady spot under a tree and ate fried
chikin and bread with bauter.
After lunch my sister and I took a canoe out on the lake. We were drifting
along when suddenly my sister screamed. I looked over to see what the
problime was. There was a hole in the bottom of the boat. The canoe was
flling up with water.
Luckily our parents saw us and ran for help. Another person said he
would help. This fne fello swam out to the canoe. He held out a rope for us
to grab onto, and then he dragged us to shore. He was our hero!
It was an exciting end to an almost peaceful picnic.

King of the Jungle
Some people think that the lion is the king of the jungle, but lions do not
even live in forests. The real king of the jungle is the tigger!
I did a report on these large cats. Here are a few things I learned. These
animals live in Asia, not in Africa, as many people think. They are tiene when
they are born, only 2 or 3 pounds, but they grow fast. The biggest one on the
plannett weighs more than 1,000 pounds! Because they live alone, they can be
siellent as they walk through the shadey forest looking for food.
The next time someone calls a lion the king of the jungle, do me a faiver,
and tell them the truth!

misspelled words. Write the words correctly on the lines below.
My parents always taught me that it is important to give to those who
have less than we do. It does not have to mean giving money. If you are
abbel, it is also great to give your time and talents.
Each summer, we travle to a nearby city and work with a group of
people building a house for another family. Even when I was litel, I could
help by passing out lunch to the workers. Everyone got a sandwich and
a pikkel. Then I would spend the afternoon playing with toys or a puzle
with other kids.
Last year, I was old enough to handel a bigger job. I would bring the
right tools to my mom and dad.
It feels good to help others. It can be a lot of fun too!
