Hello Homophone Heroes,

You did a great job yesterday identifying my mistakes.  I knew I could count on you to know the correct form of each homophone.  Today, we will continue to work with these tricky words.

Please order your lunch, wash your hands and add a mixed number to the easel.  Please label the picture with the mixed number AND the improper fraction.  I also need you to write a time you were involved in a win/win situation on the post it note I gave you.  After that, you can spread out your homework.  Finally, grab your mini and complete your assigned reading.  We will discuss the pages during Daily 4 time today.

I hope to start morning meeting right away today.  Let's work together to make that happen!

Dear Students,                                                                          

Hello!  Don't panic, I know I spelled some words wrong in this message.  It is your job to find the errors and fix them.  You see, I seem to have a homophone curse today.  Homophones are words that sound the same, but are spelled differently.  There are many homophones in our language.  Please make a list of my mistakes along with the correct form of the word I should have used.  I'd like you to bring that with you to morning meeting.

In other work, please order your lunch and wash your hands.  I also need you to complete page 15 in your blue math packet.  I expect you'll need help on number 5.  It's tricky!  Once your math work is done, you can work on my list of spelling errors.  Good luck!

I hope to meet you on the rug shortly for morning meeting.  We have much to do today!

Anthony, __________ and ____________ will share today.

Mrs. Harvey

p.s. I didn't forget about the educreations plant video; we will do that during science today.
