Homophones can be tricky! And with SO many floating around in our student's reading and writing, their simply isn't time to teach all of them. Creating a "Homophone Gallery" allows students to write, draw, and interact with 127 different pairs (and a few trios) of homophones! This product can be used in many different ways- YOU get to choose what fits YOUR classroom. Check out these ideas below:
1. Homophone Gallery Wall
With 127 homophone pairs, there are enough for an entire grade level to create a huge hallway display of homophones! Each pair or trio is in a square that can be easily cut out and turned into a mega sized gallery. When the gallery is complete, have students take a gallery walk and discuss what they notice about the spelling, artwork, and sentences used!
2. Homophone Bulletin Board
If you have a prescribed list of homophones to cover, downsize your mega gallery into a simple bulletin board. Use the table of contents to pull the page numbers you need for easy printing.
3. The Giant Book of Homophones
Looking for a more compact way of introducing the difference in all of these homophones to your students? Have each student complete 1 or more pages, laminate, hole punch, and create a book of homophones for your classroom library! This works great after having displayed student work in a hallway gallery or bulletin board.
4. Homophone Games!
Learning feels a lot less like- well, learning, when you're playing a game! Cut the homophones pairs in half and play a class-sized game of matching, Go Fish, or even charades!
