Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge The Difference Between Its and It's - Section 6: Closure


This lesson builds on my students' prior knowledge of homophones (words that sound the same, but have different spellings and meanings).  It allows them to engage in guided practice, a game, and independent practice through a writing exercise.  It's a balanced literacy lesson that is full of reading, writing, listening, and speaking!
