Reflection: Intervention and Extension Homophones and Homonyms: Creating a List to Focus Our Attention - Section 2: Guided Practice


In order for students to stay observant of their reading and writing, I could make this an either ongoing project where students have their own homophone or homonym collection worksheet where they write them when they read in them in a book or are revising their own work. It would also be helpful to get a few more common words that show up in students work, define them, and add them to a classroom poster. I’ve also had success in the past where students collect their own list and either illustrate it or write definitions for ones that they add.

One of the most time consuming but fun ways is to collect homophones and homonyms and create a word wall around the room. You’ll be surprised how covered your walls will be at the end of the year.
