This is the big category,the umbrella under which we find homophones and homographs. Homophones are words that sound alike, but have different meanings and spellings. They are the sets of words that you probably learned in elementary school, though your teacher may have used the broader category of homonyms. Examples of common homophones include: Their and there; Hear and here and To, too, and two. Because there are many words in the English language that sound the same but are spelled differently, students may struggle to write the right spelling for certain words. With these power points, students will be able to define homophones, give examples of different words that are considered homophones and use them correctly in their writing. At the end of each Power point, students will be able to demonstrate correct usage and spelling of different homophones.
