Proof Reading

← return to main page

Most kids dislike reading the work they have written before they hand it in. They seem to think that it's something only children do, but everyone has to check their work for mistakes. Even Mrs. Bruce does it!

Even if you do check your work, just reading it through is unlikely to highlight spelling mistakes - the brain tends to see what it's expecting and it's easy to miss errors.

The solution? Read BACKWARDS! Skim through it forwards to check that it all makes sense and then start again from the end and look at each word in reverse order. Any spelling mistakes should jump out at you and you have a chance to correct them.
