#2016dollardeals Frequently Confused Homophones Task Cards

I created these task cards to help teach Common Core ELA goal L.4.1.g.

These cards also include QR codes! If students have a device that can scan QR codes, they can check their own work! They can write the answer on paper, then use their device to see if their answers are correct. Students LOVE this feature!

If your students do not have devices, or you don't want them to use them, I left the original cards without QR codes.

These cards can be used in multiple ways:

* individual: great for students who need extra practice and also great for students who finish early

* partners: great activity for Daily 5 or students who finish early

* small group: great activity for the teacher to do with a small group that needs extra practice or a challenge; can also be used in a small group in rotations

* whole group: this makes a great "Scoot" game; it also works well to place them around the room randomly and let students walk around to complete them

There are 24 cards in this set. All cards ask students to fill in sentences with some of the most frequently confused homophones.

* Cards 1-4 = to, too, two
* Cards 5-8 = its, it's
* Cards 9-12 = there, their, they're
* Cards 13-16 = bored, board
* Cards 17-20 = through, threw
* Cards 21-24 = whole, hole

I have included two student worksheets:

* One worksheet has a frame with workspace for students to show their work, thoughts, evidence, etc.
* The second worksheet has 24 boxes for students to record their answers.

** I included 2 sets of cards.

The first 24 cards DO NOT have QR codes.
The second 24 cards DO have QR codes.
(Both sets have the same questions.)

I created these cards for you to print on card stock and laminate. I hole punch mine in the top corner and keep them on a book ring. You can print multiple sets so that several students can work at once.

This game was created for fourth grade standards, but would easily serve third grade (for a challenge) and fifth grade (for review).
