Ever had a text conversation that just wasn't what you meant to say? Well that’s what happens with homophones!
In this download, you will receive 18 different editable “homophones” for kids to identify and correct. I prefaced these phones with the book Dear Deer to introduce the homophones. We then went through each phone as a class for the kids to think about the different meanings.
Each phone has a conversation in which a homophone is used incorrectly. The first text box is the incorrect
homophone. In the second box, the kids should draw what the homophone would literally look like. For example, if the homophone is “I need to bring a sweatshirt tomorrow. I get so cold when my arms are bear”, the first drawing would be of a person with big furry bear arms. Then the person corrects the text and says “Oops, I meant to say I get so cold when my arms are bare”. Then they would draw a picture of what it was meant to say.
Students really enjoyed the silliness of a text conversation.
They print on 11x17 paper to ensure room for the drawings.
