Transcript of Homophones

What are they? Their, They're or There? 'They're is perhaps the easiest to remember. It is the shortened form of "they are".

For example: They're catching a flight at 11.45.

Tip: if you can replace they're with they are in the same sentence, and it still makes sense, then you are using it correctly.

"They're coming over for dinner."

"I wonder who they're talking to." They're There 'There' is used to describe a place. 'The post office is over there.'

"There is an old haunted house."

"We are going over there to eat."

Tip: Usually, if you can replace there with here in the same sentence, and it still makes sense, then you are using it correctly. Their 'Their' always shows possesion and is usually followed by a noun: house, dog, pen, coat. If your 'there/their' follows a noun then you would use 'their'

"Their dog is pretty awesome."

"Have you seen their new store?"

Tip: Usually, if you can replace their with our in the same sentence, and it still makes sense, then you are using it correctly. Worksheets Homophones are words that sound the same, but have different spellings and meanings:

See Homophones Two,To or Too? 'Two' is perhaps the easiest to remember. It is simply the spelling of the NUMBER 2!

For example:

"We have two dogs."

" I can't believe I ate two whole ice-creams!!"

"I have two tickets for the match" The word "too" is used when you're referring to an extra or excessive amount of something.
For instance:

I'm too tired to do another math problem.

I've eaten too many blueberries and I'm feeling sick.

I'm coming to your party too.

I think the school day starts too early.

You're talking about going past a certain limit.

Notice how each case above deals with the notion of an "extra" amount? Just think about that extra "o" in "too" as you write and proof read. ‘To’ is used for expressing movement or direction to a point

For example:

'I didn't want to walk home'

'I went to my car'

'I got to the shops in ample time' Worksheets TWO TO TOO Your or You're Two,To or Too? You're is a combination, of the words you and are.

-"You're a good friend" = "You are a good friend."
-"I don't know what you're talking about" = "I do not know what you are talking about."

Other examples of combination words include doesn't" for "does not," they're" for "they are," and can't" for "cannot." You're 'Your' is the possessive form of you, referring to something that a person has, something that belongs to the person in question, or the person you are talking to.
