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.
