What They Are:BeginningHomophone Decks 1-6 contain 54 pairs of matching homophones (words with the same pronunciation but different spellings and meanings) that are very common in everyday speech and writing. Examples are ate/eight, be/bee, are/"R", r, hear/here, there's/theirs, one/won, too/two, and the like. These are listed in the accompanying Book, and there are ten reproducible quizzes testing mastery of the items.
Why You Need Them: Although basic learners and very new readers may not have enough vocabulary to be confused by homophones, high-beginning language students and developing readers will soon encounter them. In fact, homophones may be fun to "study" because they're a "curiosity." Paying attention to them early in the learning process will provide a natural introduction to some of the vagaries of English spelling and vocabulary.
