Homophone Pear Tree!

This week, 3K readers studied homophones. Students learned that homophones are words that sound the same, but are spelled differently and mean different things. Students practiced their homophones as their spelling words this week. To show off their knowledge of homophones, students created a Homophone Pear Tree! Students found pairs of homophones to write on their pears, and then added it to our tree.
