This product focuses on the meanings of homophones. Using a PowerPoint presentation of 31 slides, we have used 52 words, each covering 24 homophone word sets of two and three words and placed the definitions of the words onto the slides. Students have to link the word to their meaning - either as a whole class, group, or individual activity. Following each slide, an answer key reveals whether the students were correct or not.
Included in the resource:
- PowerPoint activity which can be edited to further add other homophones or mix the slides up to use again and again until the knowledge has been mastered
- PDF for ease of download and ability to print too.
As a PowerPoint, this enables the teacher to print certain slides, move the slides around, target specific pairs/triads of words which are challenging students, and also, edit the resource to add their own homophone which have not been included on this presentation.
This resources supported our students to learn the vocabulary, the meaning of the words and how the words are spelt differently. It has also supported a widening of vocabulary within language and writing too.
