Word of the Week – government

This week we took a closer look at the word government as our word of the week. Mrs S chose this word because it was a common spelling error in some of our writing recently.

Sometimes the way that we say a word can be troublesome for when we are trying to spell it. We may not hear all the letters we need to use when writing a word correctly.

Which words do you know that can trick us when we are spelling because there is a letter we do not hear? Leave a comment sharing your thoughts.

  1. Grade 5/6, I have beaten you to the blog! A common misspelt word is environment, very much like government, because of the sneaky ‘n’ in the middle. please note how I have used commas in the last sentence!
