Use Your Storytelling Abilities to Teach Homophones

Homophones are words that sound alike but are spelled differently and have distinct meanings. For example, wait and weight are homophones. Write a story that includes ten incorrectly used homophones, and ask your child to correct your mistakes. When he's done, go over the work together, and see how many other homophones you both can come up with.
