This week’s spellings are all homophones. Discuss with your child what homophones are. Children need to learn how to spell these words but also understand their meanings. When the children are tested on these words, we will say the word in a sentence to test their understanding of each word. For example. I threw the ball.

  • there
  • their
  • one
  • won
  • through
  • threw

  • hear
