  • draw a picture of a log and a rabbit on the board, and place the rabbit at different positions in relation to the log. This would draw out the use of prepositions. For example, "The rabbit is on the log." It sounded like a sensible approach.

    The site claims that it will address 10 times more mistakes than a word processor including contextual spelling errors and poor vocabulary usage.
