Homophones Flashcards Printable

Homophone Flashcards

Definition-of-Homophone
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.


I made these Illustrated Homophone Cards for my class. They are ideal for re-teaching and reinforcement of homophones. 

Here are a few previews:
 

Actual size
These are 46 cards which include fifty pairs (including a few triplets) of homophones, some of them are: aloud/allowed, bare/bear, eight/ate, flower/flour, mussel/muscle, cellar/seller, doe/dough, night/knight, rose/rows, rite/right/write, no/know, raise/rays, see/sea, you/ewe, pour/pore, bored/board, scene/seen, peace/piece, etc. The illustrations will help visual learners to remember the meaning of each word.

Each card measures 7.5 cm by 9 cm and they fit on landscape letter sized paper (six to a page). It is available for purchase here at my Teachers pay Teachers store.

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!
