A short dialogue excerpt I wrote to teach my daughter about homophones:
"Jogmar you swine, will we reach London in time for me to take that course on how to be a better pirate captain?"
"I wish you wouldn't be so coarse, Captain. We're on course and should arrive before dinner."
"Speaking of dinner, do you know what the main course is tonight?"
"Of course I know, my brother is the cook after all. We're having rabbit corse."
"Mmmm, rabbit. I just hope the bread isn't so coarse this time."
Incidentally, our older kids use this great book by for their grammar studies: Grammar Girl Presents the Ultimate Writing Guide for Students.
