Hey everyone Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday.
Two words that are pronounced exactly the same but they have different spellings and different meanings. Our homophones for today are:
mite which is a tiny bug and
might meaning could possibly or physical strength
So to say these words correctly three little sounds. Start with the m m. Lips together, air moves out of your nose.
Move to the long I and to do this open your mouth wide, tip of the tongue is very low, back of the tongue is pulled high up, and then close the mouth to a smile, and your tongue will be high and flat. I.
End with the t. Do this by touching the tip of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth and pulling it down.
Let’s put it all together
might might might
mite mite mite
And now for a sentence.
I might move the rocks but i am afraid that there might be mites.
