(10 minutes)
  • Have students come to a group area.
  • Write the word "homograph" on the board.
  • Give students the definition of a homograph and dissect the word: "homo" means same, while "graph" means write.
  • Give an example of a homograph and write it on the board and discuss its various definitions.
  • Ask students to come up with other examples and help with definitions as they are presented.
  • Show them the example book and tell them, "Now, you are going to pick six of these homographs and make a book. On each page, you will write the homograph you choose twice and draw a picture to show me two definitions of the homograph."
