The name of this worksheet is “Using Homophones.” First it gives a definition of homophones, and then it presents six sets of them. They are: (here, hear) – (be, bee) – (new, knew) – (nose, knows) – (by, buy) – (to, two). Students must write their choices on blank lines within the context of a one page story. It is a tale about a little squirrel and a little rabbit talking to each other about what they are doing. Included are drawings of a squirrel and a rabbit. The 2nd page is the answer key.
You could share this worksheet as a guided lesson for students to understand how and when each homophone is used correctly. It could also be used as a practice worksheet after students have studied how to use homophones correctly. If you use this as a quiz, then you’ll have an assessment of your students’ proficiency on these homophones. This worksheet can also be used as homework.
