  • Hi everyone it is Jennifer from  Tarle speech with your two for  

  • Tuesday! Two for Tuesday are homophones. These  are words that are pronounced exactly the same  

  • way. The words are pronounced the same. The  meanings and the spellings are different.

  • So our words today are

  • pier a dock and peer to look

  • I'm going to start off by saying I have another  video for pair pear and pare. These words are  

  • pronounced with the air vowel. PAIR. These R vowels get very confusing because of  

  • spelling. So again today we're talking about pier  and peer and to say these words correctly we're  

  • going to start with the p sound. P. Put your  lips together and open them up air puffs out.

  • Then we're going to move to that ear vowelTo do this smile. Tongue is nice and high  

  • and then you're going to move to that "R" by  either popping the tongue down or flipping  

  • it back and the back of your tongue stays  high up. End with square tense lips: ear.

  • And now for a sentence

  • I love to peer at the ships  from the end of the pier.

  • Give it a try people are going  to notice the difference.
