Homographs Pack 1

Homographs Pack 1

Homographs are words that have the same spelling but different meanings. Examples – wind, bear, wave, bark, wound, row, evening, bat, sink, pant, bank etc.

Homo means ‘same’ and graph means ‘write.’ If two words are written identically but do not share a meaning, it is a homograph. They enhance vocabulary.

Homographs are different from homophones. Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings. They are not spelled the same and that does cause a lot of confusion.

So, homographs have similar spellings but homophones do not.

Bat – a cricket or baseball bat or it can be the animal ‘bat.’

The words can be traced. Your children will surely enjoy this worksheet and it will enhance their vocabulary.
