If your child needs help with homographs, this worksheet can help her get the practice she needs. A "homograph" is a word that looks the same as another word, but means something different. Some examples include "bat" (animal) and "bat" (baseball equipment), or "bow" (in your hair) and "bow" (used to shoot arrows). After reading the homograph your child will need to write down two different definitions. Besides a container for holding liquid, what is a "pitcher"? At the end of the worksheet, your child will be asked to use a homograph in a sentence.
