Teaching “A Lot”

Some English teachers¬† furrow their brow at the sight of a single word in student papers:¬† “alot.”¬† The word does not exist; the correct presentation is in two words–a lot.

While a minor gaff, this lesson learned early can help your kids avoid the wrath of the teacher’s red pen.

A friend sent me this clever blog-comic on the subject “The Alot is Better Than You at Everything,” which could help them remember the correct spelling. Enjoy!
