Homophones are all about knowing which (not witch) spellings are correct for these confusing words. English spelling is all over the place with these. That is why I have created a Homophone unit to help embed these spellings into their brains by using pictures and memory tricks.
For example, a student learns the trick for knowing the homophone "there" is the one to use for place because it has "here" in it. Get it? Some mnemonics are straightforward while others are silly and fun. This creative collaboration of mnemonics always makes this unit enjoyable for everyone involved.
I have taken only the most common but confusing homophones and put them in 4 tests (128 words in all). But if you are in a hurry, I narrowed down the top 20 pairings of homophones called the "NO EXCUSE HOMOPHONE LIST".
Students fill in the correct spelling of the homophone next to the already printed definitions and pictures. Then they fill in the optional mnemonic for the spelling.
With so many adults still getting witch or which incorrect, it was time to take a different approach to teaching homophones. This is that fun approach. Enjoy.
