This activity is to help children understand the concept of homophones. Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings. All the words used have two homophones, except the words by, bye, and buy have three words. For these words I included a page with all three words in case you are not cutting the pictures. I also included a copy with the words on two different pages so if you want to cut out the pictures to be the same size and form a little book you can do this. There is also a cover page if you decide to make it into a book.
This lesson can also be used in a classroom on a SmartBoard and the worksheet can either be printed out or students can walk up to the board and circle the correct response.
This activity includes 12 homophone pairs with a sentence containing the word as well as real pictures that I took to accompany the sentence. There is also a worksheet where the child needs to decipher which is the appropriate homophone to use (the two or three choices are provided) as well as write the definition for homophone at the top of the page. Each homophone pair is used once, but three are used twice (with a different sentence and answer) so that there are 15 sentences.
Words used in this activity include deer/dear, be/bee, plain/plane, read/red, etc.
