A game to play as a class when learning about homophones.
Use this activity to practice homophones with your students.
Print out the game cards on cardstock.
Give each student a card. Students may need more than one card, depending on class size. The student that has the sentence ‘I am the starter’ begins the game by standing up and reading their card. Once they have read their clue, the student that has the matching homophone on their card stands up and reads what is on their card. The game continues until the last person reads out ‘I am the end’.
This resource include 36 game cards and 4 blank cards in case you would like to add in your own homophones!
