Homophones are a tricky concept for students to understand. My students enjoy doing hands-on work and having the opportunity to work in groups or at stations. This is why I created these
HOMOPHONE PUZZLE PIECES.
There are 60 different words/30 different homophone pairs!
Words included: there, they're, their, flew, flu, great, grate, toe, tow, tea, tee, know, no, sea, see, rose, rows, made, maid, won, one, rode, road, which, witch, wood, would, knew, new, right, write, night, knight, knot, not, our hour, hair, hare, bear, bare, deer, dear, you're, your, too, to, two, aloud, allowed, wait, weight, beat, beet, break, brake, by, bye, thrown, and throne.
I have used these in stations and as group work. Students have the opportunity to work together to match the homophone with its correct definition and a sentence that it could be used correctly in context.
ALTERNATE USE FROM ANOTHER TEACHER:
“I used these in my students’ interactive notebooks. We would focus on a set of homophones each week. It was a great reference tool for them to be able to refer back to throughout the year! Thank you!!!”
Don't let your students be the adults that mix up "you're/your", "too/to", etc. Help them practice these words now, and let them enjoy themselves as they practice!
