This Powerpoint slide show teaches students the difference between homophones and homographs.
As a whole class lesson, students choose the meaning of the homograph based on the sentence. Then, clicking on the "enter" key reveals the correct answer.
(Sample words include: dove, contract, desert, and object.)
Students can use whiteboards to determine which definition best fits the usage in the sentence.
As a guided practice activity, students can work with a partner to brainstorm the meaning of additional common homographs (perfect, bass, record, present, offense)
