Hi everyone Jennifer with Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday homophone lesson. Homophones are words that are spelled differently, with different meanings, but have the same, yes, the same pronunciation. It’s a bonus day. It’s a three for Tuesday. We have towed which means to remove an illegally parked car or to drag something away, a toad which is an amphibian that kind of looks like a frog, I know they’re different um, and toed to push with the foot or having toes. To say this word correctly, or these words correctly, three little sounds.
Start with that t t. Touch the tip of your tongue to the spot where your teeth meet the roof of your mouth meet that skin part. Air puffs out.
Next move to the O and to do that we’re going to move from open to a pucker oh. When your mouth is open, the tip of the tongue is low in the front of the mouth, back of the tongue is pulled high up, and then as you pucker, your tongue just ends flattened them out, end by touching your tongue to the same spot as you did for the T but your voice box will be on and vibrating and moving for the D.
Let’s put it all together
toad towed toed
toad towed toed
And now for a sentence: In the children’s book a four toed toad towed the car.
