Homophones and homographs create some of the most common spelling mix-ups. In our suite of interactive homophones and homographs games, students from second to fifth grade can practice identifying the right word to use to complete the sentence. Help your students avoid spelling confusion and sharpen their writing skills with these homophones and homographs games!
What the difference between a homophone and homograph anyway? As your students will discover while they play through our collection of homophones and homographs games, the difference is in what way two words are similar. While homophones sound the same but are spelled differently, homographs are spelled the same but are often pronounced differently and have different meanings. All of this presents a significant challenge to any young reader and writer, and can create stumbling blocks to your student's confidence. By playing through these games, suited for second to fifth grade, students will practice choosing the correct word for their sentence. This helps students make a connection between each word and the context where it fits, making it much more likely they will retain that information when they write. As you kids dive into these engaging and entertaining challenges, you will love seeing them sharpen their pronunciation, polish their vocabulary, and become more confident spellers and mature writers.
