As part of our spelling unit this week, the skill that we are working on is homophones. Homophones are words that sound the same, but are spelled different. An example is, ate and eight. After discussing what homophones are, we read a book called, Dear Deer, by Gene Barretta. Each page used a set of homophones in one sentence. After reading this funny story, we each chose a set of homophones, and wrote a sentence for them. Then we each made a page for a class book. It included our sentence and a picture. Here is a slide show of our pages. Hope you enjoy them!
