    Hello to all the wonderful, creative team at TeachStarter! I have several questions regarding your Homophones Posters: Is there a reason why your Homophones posters are in very two different fonts/styles? Are they to be considered as Lower and Middle Primary? Is there any possibility that the original designs may be updated to match the newer format? Is there any likelihood of an Upper Primary poster series being produced to include words like stationary/stationery, patience/patients, complement/compliment, coarse/course, gorilla/guerilla etc.?

      Hi David, Thank you for your questions. There are very few differences between the original and updated designs of the Homophones Posters in terms of the content that they deliver. These posters would be beneficial for students across multiple grades, from Lower to Upper years. There are 11 posters in the original set and each one already has an updated version in the most recent Homophones Poster Pack which you can find at the following link. https://www.teachstarter.com/au/teaching-resource-pack/homophones-posters-resource-pack/ Those are great suggestions for some additional homophones targeted towards Upper Primary. Please feel free to request a resource at our 'Request a Resource' page. https://www.teachstarter.com/request-a-resource/ Requests are voted on by the Teach Starter community and we create the top requests. Please let me know if you have any further questions, I’m more than happy to help.

    Can I ask why none of your posters or worksheets have were on them?

      Hi Rachelle, If you are referring to the contraction for 'we are', 'wear' and 'where', we do have posters and worksheets for them. Check out the links below: https://www.teachstarter.com/teaching-resource/where-wear-and-were-homophones-poster/ https://www.teachstarter.com/teaching-resource/homophones-worksheet/ We also have a very extensive homophones collection here: https://www.teachstarter.com/teaching-resource-collection/homophones/ If you meant 'were' and 'whir', you are correct, we don't currently have these in our collection. We are always updating and upgrading our resources and I have added 'were-whir' to our list of future homophones. Thanks for commenting on one of our resources and don't forget, if you love it, feel free to share it on social media.
