day 7: wacky words—to, too, and two

Another Wacky Word trio, though not confused as often as “there-their-they’re,” is the words “to, too, and two.”

Again, we call these homophones because they sound (phone) the same (homo) when you hear them.

Let’s dissect these three WW’s:

    1. To    
                       a. Preposition: to the store, to mom                                            
                        b. Beginning of infinitive: to go, to run
a. Means also                                                                                                 
    b. Also has two vowels and too has two vowels      
            3. Two                                                                                                                   
      a. Number word                                                                                                         
   b. One more than one          

Keep studying the other Wacky Words so far—you never know when you are going to get another pop quiz! Smile…
