Everyday vs every day
May I know what is the different between everyday and every day? I go to school everyday or I go to school every day? Thanks.
Everyday is an adjective that describe the common, routine, mundane.
I need to do my everyday chores.
Every day can be replaced with each day (an easy way to remember how to use every day).
I need to do chores every day.
What you do, May, is go to school every day.

I agree with Jody.
"Everyday" is a closed compound adjective and should be followed by a noun. It never stands alone as the subject or object of a sentence or phrase.
"Every day" is an adjective followed by a noun. It can serve as a subject or object.
Jody's "each day" is an excellent way of deciding which is correct in your sentence.
