Homophones Again

Homophones are words that sound alike but they have different meanings and they are spelled differently. There are many words in the English language that sound the same but are spelled differently and some of these are: (ate eight), (bare bear), (be bee), (blew blue), (bolder boulder), (brake break), (ceiling sealing), (cent sent), (cereal serial), (cite sight), (dear deer), (dew do due), (die dye), (flew flu flue), (flower flour), (hall haul), (hear here), (heard herd), (higher hire), (hole whole), (hour our), (feat feet), (know no), (lessen lesson), (made maid), (mail male), (meat meet), (miner minor), (pail pale), (pair pear), (pause paws), (peace piece), (read red), (right write), (seas sees), (scene seen), (side sighed), (steal steel), (some sum), (tail tale), (there their they’re), (to too two), (threw through), (wait weight), (weather whether) and (waist waste).  Sometimes a picture can help you understand the meanings of which homophone that you are using.

  1. I love the cartoons/pictures to help explain the different meanings. I use this strategy with my students at school. When you start to delve into homophones you realize how many there are! It’s mind boggling. Thanks for joining in the Saturday Mix 😀
