Homophones and silly sentences

Homophones are words that sound the same, but are spelt differently and mean different things.
eg: 'flower', 'flour'.

I have used some of these with my students.
The mayor has a grey mare.
My uncle and aunt aren't very happy.
I write with my right hand.
I can see the sea.
Which witch is your mum?
He threw the hammer through the window.
