Homophones, homonyms and homographs... It's easy to get these mixed up. I always use this trick for remembering how to spot a homophone - 'homo-' means 'same' and '-phone' comes from 'phoneme' so it means 'sound'. So homophones sound the same! But this trick would not work on little children. Here's a lesson plan I created just for teaching about homophones to first or second graders. This fun lesson introduces homophones and encourages group work and whole class interaction and discussion. Word cards to be used are included (for a matching activity) and can also be used as word wall cards. Get it here at my TPT Store or TeachersNotebook!
- Teacher Nyla
- As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
