Great for a language center, the cards can be used by individual students or by pairs of students. It’s perfect as a quick activity or for early finishers. In this guide, you’ll find a removable answer key for each set—while the handy storage box keeps it all organized! Suggested Activities The following activities can be done by individual students or pairs of students: • Choose a specific set of cards at the student’s level, or allow students to choose a set. In sets 1 through 8, students match word cards with picture cards. In sets 9 through 15, students match word cards with sentence cards. • You can also choose to have students begin by matching all the homophone word pairs in a set before moving on to matching words with pictures or sentences. •You can choose to set a timer and challenge the student to “beat the clock” by matching all the pairs before time runs out. •H ave a student use a set of cards to play a memory game. Give the student a specific card set, or allow the student to choose. Have her turn the cards face down and choose two at a time until all the matches have been found. • Place the cards at a language center and have students rotate through, or allow students to visit the center and use the cards when they finish other work. • Encourage students to work through all the sets in order of increasing difficulty. Have them revisit any sets that were particularly difficult. Extension Activities • Invite students to create a homophone picture dictionary by writing each word and drawing a picture of it. Ask them to include a sentence for each word. • To keep a record of the matches they made, and as an assessment, ask students to record the matches they made on a piece of paper. Have them turn it in when they are finished. • Invite students to create a homophone word search using words from the cards. Choose five or six word pairs and give students ½” grid paper. Have them write the words up, down, across, or diagonally, then fill in the rest of the squares with random letters. Tell students to make an answer key and then trade word searches with a partner. Meeting Individual Needs ELL: Gather a small group of students, read through the word cards, then display them face up. Read through the picture cards and display them face up. Have students work together to match words and pictures. For sets 9 through 15, create a homophones chart that lists each word and a picture. Allow students to use this as a reference as they match words and sentences. Reteach/Extra Support: Begin with set 1 and preteach the cards to a group of students. Start by having them match just the homophone word pairs, then have them match words and pictures. You can also take out half of the pairs in a set and focus on one half at a time. When students have mastered one half, have them work with the second half. Make sure they work through the sets in order and discuss any words or sets they have difficulty with. Challenge: Give students a time limit to make all the matches they can. Have them record how many they make in a certain time. Then, challenge them to decrease the time. Or, for another activity, have students choose a pair of homophones. Challenge them to write a sentence that uses both of the words correctly, then allow them to draw a picture of the sentence.
