Homophones

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.
Students get confused between homophones, homographs, and homonyms, so 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.
