1. Things to learn from errors in our own writing:
(a) Only use "gonna" in direct speech, when using the exact words of the person speaking.
"I'm gonna go home now," said Jessica. But, Jessica said that was going to go home now."
(b) When writing a story using an iPad or the computer, it is usually always correct to have the writing lined up against the left hand side margin - as in this page.
2. Correct Usage: The difference between allowed and aloud
(a) I am allowed to go to camp this year. (My parents will allow me to go.)Most of the time, this is the word we would be wanting to use in our writing.
(b) He worked out his maths strategy aloud so the teacher knew he understood how he got the answer. (If the meaning has anything to do with noise or being heard, then aloud is the word to use.)
3. Grammar:Simple Sentences

Here's some examples of alliteration in songs.
Today our tongue twister was: Dust is a disc's worst enemy.
6. Punctuation: Capital Letters
7. Writing: This didn't get finished because we had a fire drill.
