Sarah’s Challenge this week:
This week we are seeing double with ‘Double Take’.
The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our homophone sets this week are:
gait – manner of walking or running
gate – fence door
leased – rented
least – the minimum
With an elegant gait, the horse trotted contentedly out of the stable and through the open gate into the field.
The land was leased and the farmer was pleased that the least he could expect was manure for his roses and rhubarb.
