Wordworking: R is for Rise vs. Raise

Rise vs. raise confuses me from time to time. I use Good Work, Amelia Bedelia to remember. One of her jobs is to bake bread. The directions tell her to let it rise, so she sets the dough in the pan, but when it doesn't rise, she ties a string to the pan and raises it into the air.

Try the worksheet below and see if you can keep them straight.

Happy Weekend, A to Zers. We are SO close. Eight more posts to go. (Still, it seems daunting when I haven't written them yet:D )


  1. Great post and yes, it's unbelievable only 8 more post to go. Have an enjoyable week-end.

  2. I have to admit to sometimes messing these two up just by making a typo. I don't mean too, but if I'm in the flow of writing and not really thinking about grammar, I have been known to do this from time to time.

    *Eight more to go! I still have to write them as well. Almost there, almost there!

  3. You can make it to the end. Go, Robin!

  4. We can do it!! Almost over. WOO HOOO!!
