Now you can make homophones come to life for your students with an activity that gives students a personal connection as they use cell phones to write homophone text messages, create their own phone covers, and master multiple-meaning words. My class LOVED these and wanted to make more as soon as we finished! Allowing students to create additional cell phones could be a great incentive if students finish work early or to earn as a special privilege. This PDF includes lesson plans for teaching homophone basics, printable “cell phone” student sheet, over 100 age-appropriate homophone pairs to choose from, pictures of completed examples, an easy student-created assessment idea, and many useful teacher tips. You can use this activity over and over all year long to build spelling and vocabulary skills. The result – students engage and bloom!
