A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word, but has a different meaning and is spelt differently.
For example: there/their/they’re
All of these words sound the same but are spelt differently and have a different meaning. It is important we use the correct homophones when we are writing.
What homophones can you think of?
Today we will pick a homophone each and write the words into sentences.
- The car is parked over there.
- The family went and washed their car.
- They’re going to the zoo.
You will then have a challenge of trying to put all of the homophones into one sentence.
Example: They’re hopping into their car over there.
