Let's play with words!

Words that sound the same but have different meanings are called HOMONYMS

Sometimes they are spelled the same and sometimes differently. 

Each week (for 10 weeks) I will give you sentences with two missing words.

These words will sound the same, but they will have different meanings.

See if you can figure out the puzzle. 

Check your answers.
