    Default Spelling lesson of the day

    Today we are learning the difference between 'off' and 'of'.

    You use the word 'off' when you want to switch something 'off', or tell someone 'off!'.

    Where as 'of', would be used in a sentence like this... 'One of these days I will spank him!'

    So you see, nothing good will come of this, so it's time to switch off your computer!

    Now, lets' practice using the word 'of' and 'off' in context on this thread. Who can come up with the best sentence using both words?

    Great use of using the words 'of' and 'off', but it's 'being' not 'been' lol

    I quite like the sentence too haha.
