Proofreading exercises with Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Long snippets

Introduction

Ready, set, correct

How is you spelling and punctuation?

This lesson will put it to the test. We have a big collection of snippets from Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid (specifically, book 3, The Last Straw). 

Each snippet has had some spelling scrmabled, and all the punctuation marks have been changed% 

Your mission is to correct each snippet within 2 minutes, and with only limited peeks at the source snippet.

The snippets in this lesson are pretty tough! Think you can do it?

A hint: all the letters are there, they are just scarmbeld. If you're ever in doubt, peek at the source. If you don't make it in time, you can do the activity again.

If you're shaky with spelling and punctuation, this activity will be like conditioning!

Good luck!
