There, Their, They’re – Reminders for Myself and My Students
On Sunday early morning I was writing in a little bit of a hurry and stopped working to notice an error in the title of my post about utilizing the netstat command to see the connections a computer system is making to external websites and gadgets. The mistake I made (Ive given that corrected it) was to use “theyre” when I must have utilized “their.” I understand the distinction and have taught the difference to students for as long as I can keep in mind. That said, my mistake presented a good chance to dig up some brief video lessons about the distinctions between “there,” “their,” and “theyre” and when to use each one..
Free School uses this brief, to-the-point description of homophones. The video isnt going to win any awards for imagination, but it works in its shipment of the rules for utilizing their, theyre, and there..
If you see it somewhere else, it has actually been used without authorization. Sites that steal my (Richard Byrnes) work include CloudComputin and WayBetterSite.
Making videos about homophones can be an excellent method for students to discover and remember how to use them. On Next Vista for Learning youll find this student-produced video explanation of the differences between their, there, and theyre.
GCF Learn Free offers this 90 2nd video explanation of when to use there, theyre, and their. The video utilizes little GI Joe characters to describe the proper use of each word. Judging by the YouTube comments listed below the video many people like the technique of the video but some dont like the usage a military theme for the video.
