Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings and different spellings. A good understanding of homophones is important to master the English language. They enhance vocabulary and also reduce spelling mistakes. Understanding them is important not only for children but also for adults. Before, attempting these sentences, please try the homophone list that I have prepared. It has close to 100 words that will help you understand homophones better.
The above anchor chart explains homophones with examples. It can be used as a wall display.
These examples help us understand the concept better. I like discussing these words on a blackboard or whiteboard which makes it easier for kids to understand.
Before attempting this pack, I suggest you try my pack of homophones worksheets which are simpler and then move on to these task cards.
You will find these sentences particularly challenging as a pair of homophones has been used in a single sentence.
