I did check my homework or I do check my homework

Hi
I know “I did check my homework “ is better than “I do check my homework. But is “ I do check my homework “ grammatically wrong ?
Thanks:)

    @lchang135, Both sentences are equallky grammatical and equally strange.
    Neither is better than the other.
    They do have different meanings.

    • I did check my homework
      We say this if there is some idea — explicitly stated or implied by the rest of the conversation —that you didn't check your homework at the point in the past when you should have checked it.

    • I do check my homework
      We say this if there is some idea — explicitly stated or implied by the rest of the conversation —that you don't regularly check your homework at all the times when you should check it.
