Teach your students how to use homophones correctly in their writing with this comprehensive set of teaching slides.
Introduce Homophones to Your Students
Are you tired of seeing homophones correctly spelled in your students’ writing?
Are you always seeing spelling mistakes such as…
- Your instead of you’re?
- There instead of their?
- To instead of too?
Homophones are words that sound the same when spoken, but have different meanings and different spellings. This makes it especially tricky when our students use these words in their writing! When dealing with homophones, it is important for our students to learn which spellings belong with which definitions so they can select and use the correct word in their writing.
Ready-Made Lessons on Homophones
This comprehensive teaching slide deck has been created to teach your students what homophones are, and to introduce them to some of the most common sets of homophones. The homophones are explored in context (sentences) with visual representations in the form of photographs to help them connect the word, its correct spelling and its meaning.
The homophones specifically addressed in this presentation include:
- Their, there and they’re
- Wear and where
- Your and you’re
- Yo, two and too
- By, buy and bye
A student activity is included after each group of homophones is introduced so that students may practice using these words in context.
