Sometimes we use ph or gh to make the f sound like in elephant and laugh. But if a word starts with gh it is pronounced as g like in ghost and ghastly.

  • Lets correct some words that needs a ph or gh - use your dictionary to find the correct spelling.
  1. Elefant is winning a trofy.
  2. Elefant is fotografing a dolfin.
  3. Elefant's nefew.
  4. Elefant is singing into a microfone.
  • Decide which of the following word will get and ph or gh or a f
  1. My nefew doesn't pheel well
  2. The boy has a bad couf.
  3. The medicine will phix him.
  4. That is enouph.
  5. The buphalo is a huge animal.

Words can sound the same, but are spelled differently and have different meanings (homophones)

  • Choose the correct word in the sentence and use the other word to make your own sentence - look up the meanings if you do not know it
  1. She sells/cells sea/see shells on sea shore/see sure.
  2. The horse/hoarse is brown with a black mane/main and tail/tale.
  3. The tortoise beat/beet the hare/hair in the race.
  • Your friend wrote the following sentences with spelling errors.  Help him to correct it. Use the following words - ate  all  for  hour  flour  knead  one dough  know  bread  you  to  some  made  family 
  • If you are done with this, practice the correct spelling of the words.
  1. I no how two make bred.
  2. Ewe mix flower and water to make the doe that you will need.
  3. Bake it fore won our.
  4. I made sum bred roles four my famili last weak.
