Hold the Homophone
  • Review homophones by watching a short video if necessary.
  • Write to/too/two, their/they're/there, and ate/eight on the board. Have students take a few minutes to look at these sets of words and identify any patterns that they see.
  • Tell students that they are going to be looking at words that sound the same but have different meanings.
  • Advise students that these words are called homophones.
  • If students are keeping a writing journal, this would be a good word to add to it with the examples from above.
  • Have students create a class list of known homophones and their meanings.
