I thought this would be fun....

think of 2 words which sound the same but have a different meaning;

they can be spelt differently but sound the same.....

sea (ocean) and see (observe)

bite (attack with the teeth) and byte (an IT word)

bell (something that rings) and belle (a beautiful woman)

book ( something you read) and book (to reserve a table)

off you go!

Box (to pack) and box (punch).
