All cards have a picture matching the homophone to help with vocabulary acquisition and spelling skills.

DONKEY is an old card game that most kids like to play, whether they are just learning the homophones or consolidating. The fun element of the game means they like to play over and over, and the trickier homophones (like they're, there and their) get learnt.

You could add the games to a Literacy Centre for independent consolidation or use them, like I do, as a fun activity at the beginning or end of an intense intervention session. Use them at the beginning to introduce target homophones, or at the end for review and consolidation.

Games are great for motivation and are especially important for establishing all the foundation skills of literacy and numeracy.

I have two massive Homophone books with 107 homophones covered with 214 Task Cards. You can use these for Literacy Centres as well as Intervention. Here's the link:


And, if you have kids who have difficulty with to/too/two, I have a TIC TAC TOE game that will help. You can find it here:
