How To Homeschool 3rd Grade ELA – About Homophones

This is a brief article that grasps the concept of homophones and I hope it helps you teach your kiddos! I’ve been out of school for more than a decade now and to be honest, I don’t even remember being taught homophones. But they were simple enough and I enjoyed completing these exercises with the kids.

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings.

Examples of Homophones:

  • Knew – New
    • “I knew there was another cookie in the cookie jar!”
    • She looked great in her new coat!
  • Your – You’re
    • Your puppy is happy.
    • You’re the most wonderful friend!
  • Hour – Our
    • It was 10 minutes to the hour of the Chinese New Year.
    • Our little brother got us in big trouble.
  • Here – Hear
    • I thought I left my keys right here.
    • I couldn’t hear you over the crowd.

I really appreciate the Spectrum workbook for 3rd grade ELA because it gave me a nice refresher so I could teach my kids. Not just with homophones, but with other ELA related grammar and mechanics teachings as well.

This has been a great first year homeschooling and I’d have to highly recommend the Spectrum workbooks. They helped me learn with my kids and didn’t make homeschooling nearly as intimidating as I thought it was going to be.
