PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This package has 53 sets of homophones (doubles and triple sets) from A to K.

This is one half of the package I wish I had about 25 years ago when I had a multi-aged class with students from 5 years to 12 years old. Now that I'm semi-retired I am devoting lots of my time to developing those resources I wish I had then.

I have designed it to be independent, so it would be ideal for a Literacy Centre. There are 53 posters with visuals to clarify spelling. Clues are included where I have found them to be effective as memory tricks (see the visual of 'bee' in Preview).

There are 106 Task Cards (with answers), at two different levels of ability.

Students can work their way through the cards in the order you prescribe and then check their answers as they go. Just choose the Task Cards at your students' ability levels and provide the matching posters for spelling checks. If it was my classroom I would focus on one or two a week (depending on ability levels) and provide the poster and task cards for students to work through. You could check this when you have time and respond as needed. It would be a great, independent way for your students to consolidate the spelling of homophones.

I have included all the homophones in the Australian Curriculum, so you can just choose these if you follow the curriculum closely.

It has Australian spelling (see the Contents in Preview), so check if it suits your needs before purchasing. You will find that there is no homophone for aunt/ant as we don't pronounce 'aunt' that way in Australia. The only other anomaly I have identified is the US spelling of 'chili'. We spell it 'chilli'. If that's a problem, just leave it out. I have avoided the use of the word 'colour' in order not to confuse American kids. In this way it can be adapted to US classrooms.

I have a great game in my store based on the old DONKEY card game. There are 5 sets of matching homophone cards (13 matching pairs in each set) for your students to have fun and gain homophone fluency.

I also have a TIC TAC TOE game with 4 sets of TIC TAC TOE boards and 90 sentences for those kids who need practice with to/too/two. This would suit intervention sessions in particular.

There is a second book for the homophones from L to Z and I am working on a series of worksheets for older students. These are developed specifically for intervention (which is my current love). You may be interested in having a look: www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Learning-solutions
