The future tense is used when we talk about something that will still happen in the future (in an hour, a day, a week, a month etc).
We use words like will and going to and sometimes we use shall (we shall).
Example: He will go do some shopping tomorrow. The winter will soon be here. I'm going to need a lot of food to survive in the wild next month.
- Write three things that you plan on doing over the holiday. (Use future tense)
- Write the following sentences in future tense
- I clean out the bird's cage and put in fresh food and water.
- I chew my food.
- He feeds his dog and gives him fresh water to drink.
- You sit outside in the sun.
- The child plays outside and kicks the ball.
Homophones are words that sound the same, but the meaning and the spelling differ. (Remember it like this - you can hear on a phone (words sound the same))
Example: night - I sleep during the night. Knight - The knight rescued the princess.
First of all make sure you know the meaning of the different homophones and then fit them in the correct sentences.
