Game: Proofreading Online
Students can put their proofreading skills to the test with Spelling Connections' Online game, which provides short paragraphs for students to edit. Players can choose their grade level, read the passages and edit mistakes using proofreading marks. Spelling errors have to be corrected. Students are told how many mistakes are in each paragraph, and they have a limited number of tries for each round. There are about 30 passages per grade level, so students can get plenty of practice.
This would be ideal for a computer station; it is a good way to have students practice editing and using proofreading marks. Try it!
