Homophones, Homographs and Homonyms
This comprehensive unit on Homophones, Homographs, and Homonyms will help expand vocabulary for commonly confused words. We used a nature theme for this unit. Kids love nature subjects, so we included animal and plant photographs to keep their interest and assist with the presentation of these lessons.

This unit can be used in several grades.
• PowerPoint introduction to homophones, homographs and homonyms. A good resource to begin the unit. 36 pages.

From The Developer:
I was a 2nd and 3rd grade elementary teacher for 33 years. I'm now a teaching librarian. It was always a struggle to find a good homophone, homograph and homonym resource, so I helped develop this comprehensive unit. Since this is an important subject to cover in early elementary years, we hope you find it useful.
