Teaching & Learning Moment - Homophone

~ Posted on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 at 5:50 AM ~

During the recent 1 week quarantine period in our 6 years old boy's kindy (few kiddos in the classes younger contracted hand foot mouth disease hence the kindy decided to shut down for a week while the staff disinfect everything. But that doesn't mean learning should stop.

So I continued teaching at home. Our boy loves to draw so I tested him on his drawing skill. I named something and he is supposed to draw it. It accidentally turned into an additional learning opportunity, homophone.

According to Wikipedia:

"A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning, and may differ in spelling. The words may be spelled the same, such as rose (flower) and rose (past tense of "rise"), or differently, such as carat, caret, and carrot, or to, two, and too."
