Third Grade Sound Alike Words
The common core requires students to be more rigorous in their language arts basics than before. Before, most states only required students up through middle school to be able to identify words as synonyms. Today, starting in kindergarten, schools are expected to ensure that students can distinguish nuances of meaning or shades of meaning from the earlier grades. The example in the standards in Kindergarten is that the kids can act out the difference between different ways of eating, laughing, talking, or walking.
By third grade, the shades of meaning is more demanding and should be demonstratable by word choice in writing and on multiple choice activities.
Also, students should know the difference in 3rd grade between words that sound alike. Through and threw. ahead and a head. wait and weight.
