Homonyms

This week in grammar, we'll talk about homonyms.

Homonyms are words that sound alike but have different meanings. Some examples of homonyms are: bat and band.

When you use the word bat in your writing, you can either be talking about a piece of sporting equipment or you can be talking about a mammal that hangs upside down.

*Fun Fact* Bats are the only mammals that are capable of true and sustained flight! Cool!

When you use the word band, you could either be talking about a group of people that make music together or a piece of jewelry that can be worn around your finger.

Throughout this week, I will be posting some examples of homonyms to my Facebook and Instagram pages. Make sure you're following so that you don't miss out!
