In these pairs of homophones, the nouns end -ce and the verbs end -se. Can you use the correct homophone to complete these sentences?
When a verb ends in -fer, if you want to add the suffixes -ing or -ed to it, you need to add another r at the end. If the word is turned to a noun with the ending -ence, the r is not doubled. Now see if you know what all the words in the left-hand column mean. Can you write a sentence containing the red words?
Put the letters from the word GRUMPY in the squares so that each column, row, and mini-grid contains all the letters that make up the word.
