The Illustrated Classroom


My students struggle with understanding the difference between they're, their, there, theirs and there's. Who can blame them? They're confusing homophones. Whenever it seems like they need a refresher, I turn to these handy ELA worksheets.

You don't have to teach the meaning of these homophones before assigning the worksheets. The worksheets have simple, clear, illustrated explanations. I avoid going into things like parts of speech because I find that it just makes the topic more confusing and doesn't help the students use the homophones correctly.

I teach middle and high school. Many of my students are English learners or emergent readers, so you might judge that this lesson would work well with lower grades than what I tagged here.

I find that the pictures create a context that helps my EL students figure out the language, and the kid-friendly style prevents my special needs students from being intimidated. As for my mainstream students who read and write at grade level… they like the cartoonish stuff more than they care to admit.

The bundle is divided into three parts. The first part deals with there, they're and their. The second part covers theirs and there's. In part three, students work with all the homophones together.

Also included are table tent "cheat sheets" that I distribute when my students are working on a writing assignment.

Feedback is appreciated!
