Homophones Matching Game... Just Play Like Dominoes!

Homophones Matching Game Third Grade Dominoes

What is a homophone? Easy! There are different definitions of homophones in many dictionaries. I stick to the basic rule: If the prefix ‘homo’ means ‘same’ and ‘phone’ comes from the word ‘phoneme’ which means ‘sound’, then the term ‘homophone’ means ‘same sound’. This definition is simple and easy to remember.

Homophones Meaning and Examples

Homophones can be found as pairs or triplets. Think of write, right and rite - that's a triplet. The doubles are more common, such as peace/piece, stare/stair, cent/sentcereal/serial, whether/weather, patience/patients, sweet/suite, etc.

I have prepared a set of 50 Homophone pairs in these Domino Cards. You're welcome to check them out. I love making games, and if my students are addicted to them, then yours will be too!

About Me

My Photo
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!
