Description

Homonyms and homophones can be very difficult, especially for ESL students. As part of our commonly confused words, homonyms, and homophone lesson series I made these task cards for my students to practice distinguishing between who's and whose. A digital mystery picture version of these practice sentences is also available.

This activity is a triple play because it can be done three ways. I love the flexibility of it because it allows me to tailor the activity to each group of students. Homophones and homonyms are very difficult for English language learners and so they need a lot of practice to be able to distinguish between them when listening and writing.

Slap: Place the large signs on the board with magnets, tape, or tacks. Divide the class into two teams and have one person from each team come to the board. Give each person a fly swatter or similar device. Read a sentence. The object of the game is the be the first person to slap the correct homophone with their swatter, thus earning one point for their team. Change people for every sentence.

Response Cards: Give each student a set of response cards. Read the sentences aloud. Students should hold up a card indicating their choice for the correct homophone for that sentence. This is an easy way to check group understanding and quickly pin point quiet students who are struggling.

Scoot / Task Cards: Print, laminate, and cut the sentence cards and provide each student with a recording sheet. Card scoot: students each start with one sentence, read it, record their answer in the correct square, and pass the sentence to the next person. Student scoot: hang or place the sentences around the classroom. Students move around the room, reading sentences, and recording their answers in the correct squares.
