  • Hi!

  • It's Jennifer from Tarle speech with  your two for Tuesday homophone lesson.

  • We have two words today that  are spelled differently,  

  • they have different meanings, but they are  pronounced exactly the same way. We have:

  • stationary which is not moving or not changing and stationery which is writing paper

  • So to say these words correctly we are going  to look at four syllables in this word.

  • Let's start with syllable number one. fFor  syllable number one we are going to say  

  • stay and to do this start with that s.  The tip of your tongue is pointed down  

  • or it's just behind those top front teeth. Air  continues out. Then touch the teeth for that t.

  • And then we're going to move to the a by opening  the mouth wide and moving to a smile. As you move  

  • the lips, the tip of the tongue will move from  low in the mouth with the back pulled high up,  

  • to the tip of the tongue will be right behind the  top front teeth. It'll be high and flat. stay stay

  • Next we're going to move to shunAnd to do this round the lips  

  • shh. Air is going to move out of your mouth  for that sh sound. That's two letters with  

  • one sound. Do not touch the tongue  to your teeth for this sound.

  • Next relax the lip. tongues are just tongueRelax the lips, tongue is just relaxed in the  

  • middle of the mouth for that uh, and then  touch the tip of the tongue to the back of  

  • the top front teeth for that n sound. Air  will move out of your nose. shun stay shun

  • Next we're going to move to air and to  do this open wide. Tip of the tongue low,  

  • back of the tongue is pulled high up, move to  square tense lips. As you do this your tongue  

  • will move a little tiny bit as you close your  mouth. Again tip of the tongue is either down  

  • or flipped back, whichever is your preference,  

  • and then we're going to end with that  e by smiling - because we are finished.

  • Let's put it all together stay shun air e station airy 

  • stationary stationary stationary stationery stationery stationery

  • And now for a sentence:

  • It is easiest to write on the  stationery if the desk is stationary.

  • Give it a try I know people  will notice the difference!
