Hello, This is the next to the last part of our Reading Lesson 7, Alfred has his detective hat on and his spyglass to remind us that we haven't unmask all our spy words yet. So here we go...
Here are our double pair of troublemakers c-o-u-l-d 'could' ~ I could eat more candy, but I don't want to get a stomach ache. And s-h-o-u-l-d 'should' ~ I should drink milk because it builds strong bones.
Let's unmask them, the clue to could and should is "wood" ~ Our floors are made of woods. 'Could and Should' sounds like wood.
Our last two spies are another pair of troublemakers they're sound-alikes. T-h-e-r-r 'there' ~ I wouldn't want to leave on the moon, but I'd like to go there and visit. The next one is T-h-e-i-r 'their' ~ If anyone leaves on the moon, then the moon is their home.
Now, let's unmask these two spies. The clue to 'there and their' is 'chair. "There and Their" sounds like chair.
