Sincerely?

30 Dec

That is a word that I always have trouble with.

Today at work, my friend Neil and I were talking about words that we have trouble spelling. Words that I ALWAYS spell wrong and the great invention of spell check helps me out.

Sincerely, definately, concious, contagious and a few other words were among the mentioned words that we spell wrong. Oh and look at that… I spelled two of them wrong. leaving it.

I always get the i before e except after c thing mixed up. I always second guess myself. I thought that over the years, I would become a better at spelling, but this is false. One thing that is embarrassing is when you are writing something on the board and your 7 year old 2nd grade students tell you that you spelled it wrong. oops.

Being a teacher does not help my lack of correct spelling.

What is a word that you always have trouble spelling?

    I totally agree with you on this, as I also have a hard time with that word as well.

    i LOVE spelling. It’s perhaps the nerdiest part about me.
    But I always spell field wrong. Not necessarily because I can’t spell it but because feild is just easier to type.
