BUNDLED SET! Includes Interactive PowerPoint AND Worksheets! Put your own spin on this no-prep homophones lesson! Consider student collaboration, competition, or getting students moving around your classroom!
Students read and examine realistic fiction passages about spring as they practice 4 sets of capitalization rules before applying them altogether. This bundled lesson focuses on the difference between proper and common nouns. Like all my products, the writing has been crafted to engage the quirky, sometimes snarky, middle-school mind.
We know that students learn best when they understand the practical value in each skill, which is why they engage with this activity so well! Students read selected news headlines and determine how to correctly use each pair of homophones in these everyday, real-life examples.
**This bundled lesson focuses on 10 PAIRS of commonly confused words: lose/loose, desert/dessert, peace/piece, ensure/insure, air/heir, hair/hare, tail/tale, feat/feet, die/dye, fairy/ferry
-Editable Instruction Slide includes definition
-Each slide focuses on 2 pairs of homophones
-Animated to reveal the answers one at a time for an engaging, guided activity!
--Definitions and Answer Keys included!

**TWO OPTIONS to help your students master this skill and provide you with a quick grade!
