In number 16 – Tyrone’s lunch, favourite is counted as a spelling mistake but it is spelt correctly in the text

Hi Emma,

Thank you for letting us know. I have fixed our mistake by making a mistake in the text.

I have mixed abilities in my class and am using the range of year level editing cards for an independent activity. Students are able to mark their work once I have checked completion. I am not allowed to have year levels (especially lower) on sheets in my class. Are the year levels able to be removed from the answer sheets and the card colour added instead? Thanks in advance.

Can you make them for Year 5/6 as well using the slides from the editing passages power point?
