Take a look at the other sets in this series... Mix & Match Root/Base Words with Affixes w/BONUS Activity: SPEED Mix & Match
and Mix and Match Context Clues w/BONUS Activity: SPEED and Match
Hey guys!! This is the third set of my new series I've created called Mix and Match!! There will be tons of sets for the areas of vocabulary, grammar, and math skills!! My intent for this series is to make it easier for us all to practice and/or assess those skills that get pushed to the side when we have time constraints. I needed something that was engaging, quick, and purposeful to sneak in some daily practice and review without taking up much time. PLUS, my kids LOVE them!!!
Stepping in...Mix and Match!
This set is focused on homophones. In this set, I've included 2 activities: 1 with pictures and 1 without pictures. There are 23 homophone pairs included. With practice identifying homophones, students are also getting practice with using context clues to determine which sentence the homophones fit. There are so many options and levels for these activities that makes the set highly useful all year long!! It's a great activity to get the kids up and moving while you are able to informally assess and monitor how the kids are doing.
These activities can be used as transition activities to move into partner/group work, centers, and/or small groups. There is also a BONUS ACTIVITY included called SPEED Mix and Match! With this activity, I've incorporated a little geometry into our vocabulary! Students will make pentagons by matching the homophone with the correct sentence. This is called SPEED because it's supposed to be even speedier than the Mix and Match activity!! :) This activity can also be used as a center and/or small group. It can also be used to transition into groups of 2 or 4.
My hope is that these sets will let you breath a little and allow your students to have that daily practice that's so hard to fit in.
