Brief DescriptionThis activity offers 150+ exercises. Create your own custom homophone activity for students!
Homophone, homonym, spelling, definition
In this lesson, use the lesson resource -- the Homophone Activity Sheet -- to create customized homophone activity pages. The Homophone Activity Sheet includes more than 150 homophone pairs. For each pair, two sentences are provided; each sentence has blanks in it. Only one of the homophone word pair will correctly complete each sentence. It is the students' job to select the correct word to complete each sentence.
Note: The sentences on the Homophone Activity Sheet are arranged in order of difficulty. Simply copy and paste the text for any ten consecutive (grade-appropriate) homophone pairs into a word processing document to create a custom-made homophone activity!
Adapt the Activity
Create a review activity comprised of a random sampling of grade-appropriate homophone pairs and their sentences. Students should achieve a score of 90 percent or better.
