To vs Too
I know the answer to this, but I would like to hear the official reason why. It is for my son, because he always gets marked down on his papers for spelling. There are a few mistakes that he makes over and over. He mixes up to and too. I can tell him which one to use or when he makes a mistake when I am with him, but when he writes at school he is on his own. Can you explain to him and/or give some catchy thing to help him remember it? At least he knows two from the others.
Too is and adverb that means also (Me too!) or excessively (too much!). To is a prepositon that indicates a place or direction. An easy way to remember is that the extra o is used when there is more. It means there is more and it has more o's.
