I have developed this game for my students who confuse the spelling of these homophones in their various contexts.
- 4 boards (see PREVIEW)
- 72 SENTENCE cards (in two sets)
- DIRECTIONS on how to play
- ANSWER sheet
- A4 POSTER
It is played like the traditional TIC TAC TOE game, so there is a bit of fun involved in getting to know which word to use. This is what motivates my students to play over and over, and it is this repetition that is necessary for some students to learn to differentiate. I use it in intervention and send it home for family fun time when parents are happy to play and reinforce the spelling patterns. It works in a week done this way. You could add it to a Literacy Centre as it will consolidate the various spelling patterns.
There is an ANSWER sheet which means it can be an independent activity.
I have used a dyslexia friendly font to be inclusive of all learners.
