HOMOPHONES – words spelled differently but pronounced the same
Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday. Our words today are spelled differently, they have different meanings, but they are pronounced the same. The words are:
weed a wild unwanted invasive plant or it can mean to remove plants
and we’d we had the contraction
So let’s give these words a try.
Three little sounds today – easy breezy!
Start with that w sound – puckered lips.
Move to that long e – smile and that tongue is nice and high and flat: e.
And then touch the tip of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth for that d sound. D Let it pop down, let the air puff out, all while your voice box is on. In fact your voice is on for this whole word
weed weed weed
weed weed weed
And now for a sentence:
We’d like to weed, we’d get rid of all of the weeds.
