Over the last few weeks we have been talking about and creating lists of homophones. These very tricky words can trap us when we are writing because they sound the same but have different meanings and are spelt differently.
One of the ways we try to spell words that we might not be sure about is to listen for the sounds we hear. It can be very useful for lots of words but not for homophones. With homophones we need to know the meaning of each word so that we are able to use the right word for the sentence we are writing.
The more we looked the more homophones we found. Some jokes and riddles use homophones and Mrs S shared some of these from a book called Eight Ate written by Marvin Terban.
