All About Homophones

Remember how excited I was about All About Spelling? Let me introduce you to All About Homophones!

All About Homophones is a program that can be used for grades 1-8 to introduce and explain the concept of homophones (words that sound the same but are spelled differently) to your students.

The book contains graphic organizers, worksheets (divided by grade level and homophone pairs), crossword puzzles (each grade level has a worksheet; some have 2 or 3), and card games (with instructions for the games and how to make the cards). The teaching tools section in the back contains a list of books that can be used to teach homophones, homophone tongue twisters, riddles and puns. The answers for all worksheets and puzzles can be found in the appendix. The book ends with a comprehensive list of homophones arranged alphabetically. All of these pairs are not used in the worksheets, but can be studied and used in the graphic organizers, lists and games for further study.

Marie has arranged this program to be used in a teacher directed way. There are no lesson plans or daily schedules. You can use this program in any way that suits your curriculum or teaching style.

Once again, I am impressed with the way this program reaches students of different levels and learning styles. Any family that is interested in homophones, or struggling with them will benefit from this helpful resource!

All About Homophones is available at the website for $32.95 (softcover) or $27.95 (ebook download). Marie offers a satisfaction guarantee!
