Students will be able to identify homophones and choose the correct homophone to use in a sentence.
- Tell students that today they will be learning about homophones.
- Remind students that homophones are words that sound the same, but have different spellings and meanings.
- Label a piece of chart paper with the heading "homophones" and write the definition below the heading.
- Write a couple of examples of homophones on the chart paper, like "your"/"you're" and "beet"/"beat".
- Ask students to volunteer other examples of homophones and record their answers on the chart paper.
- Keep the student-generated list displayed throughout the lesson and add to it as new examples arise.
