I have a love/hate relationship with the word because.

Actually...I tried to think of reasons as to why I love and hate it, but really, all I could think of was reasons as to why I hate it! 
Reason number 1...I hate correcting worksheets that specifically ask to "answer in a complete sentence" and every most of the students start the sentence with because.
Reason number 2...I type it wrong every single time. I really think it should be typed becuase. How much easier would that make my life??

But, alas, it was a spelling word last week. So I figured, if my students are going to use the word, they might as well learn how to spell it correctly! Plus, I pride myself on the fact that I was pretty much the only 2nd grader in my class that knew how to spell it and was the "expert" when anyone needed help. I'm also pretty sure that was when I decided the become a teacher. Little did I know that the word would haunt me forever!

Anyway, I figured I'd teach my students a fun little diddy to make sure they are spelling it correctly. I didn't make up this song {although I am known for making up songs!} but I have no idea where I got it from. Have you heard it before?? Please help me out if you have!

  3. Is it because {had to use it} your fingers just type it that way, or you think it should be spelled that way because {sorry} of phonics?

    My word is homework...[I just have to correct it]
    I always type homeowrk...it's just where my fingers go....

    we'll all sign a petition and get both of them changed!
    Cute song too!
