Here are some fun worksheets for reviewing grammar, spelling, and punctuation with high school students (the subject matter is inappropriate for grade school). These worksheets contain actual, awful posts that individuals published on social media sites. Students are asked to properly rewrite each post. Kids learn language arts, while also learning a lesson on how silly poorly written posts look. Answers may vary.

We don't have answer keys for these because the answers can vary so widely. They are fun for high school kids because the teens are in tune with the slang and abbreviations. For example, take this selection from the fourth worksheet in the series:

gemma gionni only tryn look out don't disrespect him jus actknolage his wisdom he got ur back but can't help u if u don't help ur self but don't disactknolage wat he say cuz he has done nun but try help me nd wud not hesitate. ta help. u if u needed i love u gemma call if u need sumone to vent to

That's largely gibberish to us. But it's something like:

"Gemma, Gionni is only trying to look out for you. Don't disrespect him. Just acknowledge his wisdom. He's got your back, but can't help you if you don't help yourself. Don't disacknowledge what he says, because he has done nothing but try to help me, and would not hesitate to help you if you needed it. I love you, Gemma. Call if you need someone to vent to."

The idea behind these worksheets is that students recognize the lack of clarity in this sort of casual writing, while spotting spelling mistakes. (The most obvious problem here is that it's a run-on sentence.)
