Students love playing games. What's better than learning while having fun?!? This homophone game has been classroom tested and the reviews are in: "we love it!" In Homophone Memory Game, by the2teachers, you will get a 12 page product of brightly colored pictures and words to learn about homophones.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
This product has 36 homophone cards. Each card has a color picture that clearly depicts the homophone and a word to label the picture. (see thumbnails and preview). You will also receive a homophone definition page (about a half sheet of paper) that is perfect for including in the game baggie. Also, there is a full sheet of paper definition page that is great to display on the classroom wall. An answer key showing the homophone pairs is also included. Finally, a page to "rate yourself" on how well individuals are working together and grasping the skill is provided to help with accountability during game play.
WHEN CAN I USE THIS?
This game is great at a word work center. It can be used for inclement recess days. Use it during small group targeted skill practice. As small group reinforcement after homophones are taught. Or, send it home for students to play with a parent as a great home-school connection.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW?
We suggest you copy the cards and laminate them. The cards can be printed in color as they are presented or in gray scale. Store the cards in a zipper top baggie. *We strongly suggest that prior to laminating you glue the homophone cards to a dark colored piece of construction paper. This will provide a backing to the cards which will prevent students from being able to see through the cards during game play.
WHAT DO STUDENTS THINK ABOUT THIS?
I've been playing this game with my small skill groups and have had nothing but positive feedback. Turning learning into a game is a hit, for sure! My struggling learners have benefited from having the word and picture. We have expanded their vocabulary by using these cards (and they didn't even realize it). My more advanced learners were challenged by playing the game, followed by writing to show meaning. The learning games that we've been using have brought new life into my class...you can see it in my students' eyes.
