There, Their, They’re…

… are homonyms.

There are many in the English language and they can trip up our spelling.  That’s why, starting last week, our weekly spelling practice words will focus upon homonyms.  They’re usually easy to spell, but you have to pay attention to their place in a sentence.

Tonight, the homework is to write a little story using the spelling words.  The words can be in any order in the story, and can be written on the spelling form or on a separate sheet of lined paper.  All of the spelling words in the story should be underlined.

I’ll be going up and down the aisles tomorrow to check the homework!!  🙂

There will be eight homonym spelling lists, then there will be a giant review test covering all of the words one more time…
