I thought I was a pretty good speller but I missed one of these questions. Why don't you try it?
Confession: It wasn't until recently I realized that I had been misspelling 'similar' most of my life. I spelled it 'similiar.' I couldn't believe it when I discovered the correct spelling. How could I have been mistaken for so long?
I encourage ALL bloggers, in fact, I 'm begging you, please, please use a spell checker before posting anything. It reflects poorly on us, as teachers, if we have blogs full of spelling errors. I make countless silly errors even with words I know so I've learned not to trust my brain when publishing. Spell check is my friend!
one step at a time...
