# This Week in Third Grade

Week 4

## Homophones

Homophones, homographs, and homonyms, oh my! Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings. Homographs are words that have the same spelling as another word, but make a different sound. Homonyms are words that are spelled the same but can have multiple meanings. Discussing these word types and their meanings when talking and reading with your child will help strengthen their word knowledge.
Do your students know the difference between homophones, homographs, and homonyms? It's good to distinguish between these words right off the bat. Discussing these word types and their meanings when talking and reading with your students will help strengthen their word knowledge.

Teach your child to ask about the who, what, when, and where of a story at the end of each chapter. If your child has a question about the text, encourage them to write it down and see if they can answer it as they continue to read.
Model comprehension self-check strategies. It's important to teach your students to stop at the end of every chapter and ask themselves: Who is the story about? What are they doing? Where does the story take place? If the student struggles to answer these questions, teach them to reread and find clues in the text that help them figure out the answers.

Empower your young writers by teaching them about the structure of a strong narrative. Begin with a hook, zoom in to tell the story with elaborative detail, and provide a conclusion to wrap it all up! Encourage your students to share their narratives with each other.
