Keyboarding- Typing Games- The Homophones Game
This is a fun activity to do with students in a keyboarding/typing class to help students build their typing speed.
A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word or words, but has a different meaning and spelling. This activity consists of 20 homophones and students need to type the correct homophone for each word. Students will be competing with each other. The specific directions are as follows: Directions: A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word or words, but has a different meaning and spelling. Below are 20 homophones. Your task is to type the correct homophone for each word. For each number you must type the original homophone and then your answer- use the slash. For an example: sail/sale, ate/eight. You will be given a set amount of time to respond to the homophones. On a blank Word document, please type your name and then go through each question. Number your answers as you respond either manually or with number bullets. Please do your best to answer as many homophones as possible in the allotted time. You many skip around but all answers must be numbered accordingly and in order. If you don’t know the answer to a homophone you can leave it blank, skip the number, or put by the number “Don’t know”. You can use Calibri, 12 font size and the default spacing. Please make sure to STOP typing your answers when time is called! The student(s) with the most correct answers will be rewarded. Good luck!
Students should really enjoy this activity. Give them a set amount of time and they must type the answers. Walk around and make sure they are not using the Internet to look up anything. When time is up you can have them print out their answers and trade with a classmate and then you can go over the answers. A detailed answer key is provided.
