This week we are studying homophones. Homophones are important to know because if you use them incorrectly in your writing, your reader will be very confused! The homophones we are learning this week are:

there- a place
their- belonging to a group of people
they’re- a contraction meaning "they are"
to- shows the direction, destination, or position of something
two- the number 2
too- as well or more than
where-a place
wear- to have something on your body
we’re- a contraction for "we are"

See if you can find more homophones as you read this week. If you find one and leave a comment on this post, you will earn a reading raffle ticket!
