    Are you smarter than a 2nd grader?

    I'm trying to help my second grader with her homework. What would is the term for words like "book" and "cook" that both have the "oo" in the middle but make different sounds? Does that fall under Homonym? Or Homophone? Or something completely different. Please help me help her!!! Thank you.
