It says the word "barn" is misspelled, but it is not. Why is this shown as a mistake?
While Lennie plays with the new puppies in the barn.
The error in this example is not related to spelling -- "barn" is the correct spelling. This is an adverbial clause answering the question "when". It requires a main clause to go with it in order to form a grammatical sentence.
"You could do something else while Lennie plays with the new puppies in the barn."
"While Lennie plays with the new puppies in the barn, you could do something else."
In this case, the software you used has incorrectly identified "barn" as a spelling error and failed to spot the actual error.
