Dear Deer: A Book of Homophones - Gene Barretta

Dear Deer is such a fun book! It is about  Aunt Ant who who writes a letter about her move to the zoo. She describes all the silly things that she sees using homophones. Trust me, you don't want your kids to miss out on this fun opportunity to learn! 


Use in the classroom: I would you use this during a lesson on homophones. I would read the book aloud to the students to see if they can identify the homophones. Then I would give a copy of one of the pages with the homophones whited out, read them aloud, and have the students figure out which word goes where. This is a great book to help the students understand homophones and how to properly use them!
