This product includes two attention-holding exercises with homophones, each with a teacher key. ( Please note: The Preview includes only 3 examples from each different practice.) Each exercise offers a different approach to identifying and distinguishing between homophones. The definition of a homophone is provided on each student sheet, as well as directions and an example.
The first exercise, "Hidden Homophones" asks students to find two homophones in each of ten sentences (ex. blew and blue). Students write the sentences and underline the "hidden homophones". The second separate exercise, "Horrible Homophones", asks students to find the incorrect homophone in each sentence and correct it (ex. "The horse had a beautiful brown tale (should be tail) and white spots." The students write these sentences in the corrected form. Please see preview to determine if these practices are appropriate for your grade level.
