Here is a fun and challenging way for students to gain familiarity with common homophones. Each of these 32 task cards features a short, high-interest paragraph with three incorrect homophones. Students must identify the incorrect homophones and write the correct ones on their answer sheets. An answer key is included so that students can self-check. There is also a cover card and three challenge cards that can be used to extend the activity and add rigor.
These cards would be great at a center. While they will work great for individuals, students may also benefit from partner work.
Printing and Cutting:
These cards were made to be printed in color, but will print out fine in grayscale too. They should print out with even margins around the cards; however, because every printer is different, it is possible that you may need to adjust your printer settings. Selecting “actual size” or adjusting the size percentage should do the trick. Cut the cards apart using the dotted guidelines (discarding the bottom strip). Laminate if possible. Another option is to print on cardstock.
