What are Homophones Anyway?

Homophones? (insert puzzled look **here**)

Yes, that is what I get from my kids the first time they hear me say “Homophones.” However, it is one of their favorite things to learn! Once they get it–they GET IT! Then you can’t keep them from pointing one out ot you whenย they see it–I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚ But what is a homophone anyway? A homophone is a word that sounds the same, but is spelled different and has a different meaning. (For example–Won and One.) I have been on the search for some games to put in centers for homophones and even some fun activities to do in lessons. And can you believe it? I found some! (Big shock? Nah.) But none-the-less, I’m excited about them so I thought I would share!

The Perfect Match

I thought this (it comes with many more pages) would be an awesome book to put together for the kids. (Well, they would illustrate it and put it together) But I love the samples it gives you and then blank pages for the students to create their homophones on!

Cooking Up Homophones

This one has cards and a task sheet that comes with it so the students can cut them out and glue them on the task sheet.

There are 3 more “card” pages, I just didn’t want to show pictures of them all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Homophone Baseball

This activity has glove cut outs and ball cut outs for the students to match up!

It also has a little “pocket” task sheet for the students to record their matches.

I am in the process of printing/cutting and laminating all of these for stations! I think my kids will enjoy them! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope these links help you–shocker, they are not on Pinterest! I found these goodies on my own–so get to printing. ๐Ÿ™‚
