Hi everyone it’s Jennifer from Tarle Speech with your two for Tuesday homophone lesson. Homophones are words that are pronounced exactly the same. They just have different spellings and different meanings. We actually have a three for Tuesday today.
And now our words are:
we the pronoun
whee an expression of delight and
wee meaning little
So to say these words correctly two little sounds. Start with a W sound. And all you’re gonna do is pucker. Tongue is flat and the mouth is not touching anything and the air moves out.
Next add that long e by smiling. Tongue again it’s not touching anything. It’s just flat and high in the mouth.
Put it all together:
we whee wee
we whee wee
And now for a sentence:
We all yelled whee as we pushed the Wee Ones on the swings.
Give it a try, people are going to notice the difference.
