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.

  • This service seems beneficial to me. However, accurate project planning and execution are made possible in large part by construction surveys. Surveyors play a crucial role in ensuring successful building projects by evaluating the terrain, soil conditions, and potential obstacles of the site. Their accurate measurements for facilitate the design process and enable engineers to make well-informed selections. Construction surveys also improve safety by spotting any risks. All things considered, these surveys are invaluable resources for maximizing productivity and lowering hazards in the construction sector.
