Corrections Homework

Your homework is to do your corrections that I have marked in your book
You need to re-write any parts of your writing that are incorrect
You also need to make sure that you don’t make the same mistakes again so I want you to come up with a way to remember at least 2 of the errors you made – e.g.
  to is used with a destination or a verb
  too is used to mean ‘as well’ or with words   related to quantity so that is why there is an extra   ‘o’ because it means there is more of something
