How to use this teaching resource

  • Print and laminate – display on word wall for student writing and reading reference and ‘playing with words‘ games…
  • Print and laminate and use for matching games such as concentration, and matching ‘snap’.
  • Classify the words into specific grapheme / phonic groups – for example group all words with the ‘e’ sound…(ey, ee, ea….)- use phonics charts as a reference..
  • Hand each child a card – all children then have to find their matching pair…
  • Go on a ‘Homophone Hunt’ – find homophones in reading books and environmental print – cut and paste homophones out of magazines.
  • Again – use the ‘101 Flashcard Activities’ document for more terrific ideas for great word play activities…using word cards.
  • Make smaller copies of the non colour coded for children to cut, match, and paste homonym pairs. Children colour in the differing grapheme sounds…
  • Make the words up on the phonics flip chart – great way to emphasise the different sound spellings.

    Yes, you are correct – in the actual downloaded file – we have the title as Homophones – just haven’t updated the pictures and some headings… ( doh )

    Doing now – thanks
