Can you ever have enough teaching activities for the homophones: its, it’s? Of course not! This Common Core aligned product (Grade 4 and up) is designed to teach and review these frustrating homophones.
The PowerPoint introduces each homophone with a sample sentence, photo or clipart to illustrate, and definition. Students are required to make note cards for each homophone to use as references for additional activities. There are interactive slides to engage students and provide practice. In addition, teaching tips are included as comments on the slides.
There are two PowerPoints. One is illustrated with Super Hero clipart by Revidevi and is a read-only to protect the integrity of the art. The other is savable. Both contain the same grammar content and interactive animation.
Also there is a Sentence Sort in which students must decide which homophone should be used to complete the sentence. A final activity, Super Grammar Vision, is an editing exercise. Students draw a line through incorrectly used homophones and write the correct one above the wrong homophone.
