An interactive way to practice homophones with your students.
Use this whole-class activity to practice homophones with your students.
Print out the homophone cards on cardstock and hand one to each student (or group of students). Read the story to the class. When the student (or group of students) hear the homophone on their card being used correctly in the store, they stand up holding their card, then sit back down again as you continue reading. A full set of instructions are included in the download.
This activity also works well when working on homophones with your guided reading groups.
The homophones included in this resource are:
- your – you’re
- allowed – aloud
- bye – by – buy
- their – there – they’re
- two – to – too
- where – wear – we’re
