Know Your Homophones

Homophones--Words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings.

Not Homophones—where/were
ant, aunt


peer, pier

there, they're, their
threw, through
to, two, too


The rules for today's Reading Workshop Homophone Telephone:
1. You can only whisper to the person beside you
2. You can only use as a resource
3. You can share with the person on each side
4. If you hear (here) words from anyone other than the person beside you, you (ewe) cannot use those words
5. If homophones start with different letters, you can list them under whichever word you list first.
6. You can't (cant) use proper nouns.
