Are YOUR students still confusing some of the words that YOU’RE trying to teach them? IT’S tricky to learn these homophones. Sometimes a fun activity can be of assistance- with ITS entertaining nature, students won’t even realize THEY’RE doing work. Just scatter the cards here and THERE throughout the classroom, and let students begin THEIR scavenger hunt!
All of the third graders at my school thoroughly enjoyed this activity. Set-up doesn’t take long and once you have everything ready, the activity runs itself!
Directions are included. But, here is the gist:
You’ll place the letter cards (A-U) around the classroom. I put them in plain sight, so they are not covered, but you can still make them tricky to find (to make it more fun!). Partners (or small groups) will turn to a page in their booklet and fill in the blank with whichever word they think is correct (IE: your or you’re). Then, they’ll follow the directions and go find out if they are correct. If they are correct, they’ll get a point. If they are incorrect, they will not get a point. They keep track of points on their booklet. My students had a blast with this and asked for me to make more scavenger hunts for them! I hope your students enjoy this, too!
