Use Your Storytelling Abilities to Teach Homophones

Homophones are words that sound alike but are spelled differently and have distinct meanings. For example, wait and weight are homophones. Write a story that includes ten incorrectly-used homophones, and ask him to correct your mistakes. When he's done, go over the work together, and see how many other homophones you can come up with.
