We all love a good homophones poster, don’t we! Because, let’s face it, learning how to read and right, I mean, write in English can shore be, I mean, sure be a challenge! In order to help your students get their heads around some of the most common homophones in English, we have created a brand new Homophones Teaching Resource Pack. The pack contains 14 professionally illustrated homophones posters depicting situations that help make sense of each homophone set.
