Hello Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday homophone lesson. Hhomophones are words that are pronounced exactly the same way they just have different spellings and different meanings. Continuing today with our letters of the alphabet miniseries and our letter is B.

It is also to exist or a linking verb, bee an insect and Bea a ladies name.

So B, be, bee, and B. To say these words correctly two little sounds. Start with that b – put put your lips together and then open them. Voice box is on and moving. Air puffs out. Then move to that long e by smiling. Tongue is high and flat and tense in the mouth.

Let’s put it all together

B bee be bea

And now for a sentence:
Bea the Beekeeper will be marking the queen with the letter B.
