Good morning! I know most of you are busy preparing for your children’s school. We are homeschooling again this year so we’re spared from all of that. In fact, we’ve been homeschooling the entire summer. We’re just finishing level 2 then we’ll take a one-month break. Hopefully, we can go on a vacation some place too while we’re on break. I really need one!
Anyway, today we learned about homonyms, words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings. I asked Z to use a homonym in a sentence. Then I told him to draw his sentence but instead of using the correct homonym he will use the wrong one. We got a few laughs seeing the result.
So aside from learning the meaning of different words, Z learned the importance of getting the right word in context.
Try this with your kids and see what hilarious homonyms they can come up with.
