As with so many other parts of English, it's all about context. The following collection of activity sheets will teach your students how to spot and interpret homonyms. Students will be asked to choose the correct homonym using sentence context clues. Activities include fill in the blank, choosing the correct term from a given word bank, defining given pairs of homonyms, correcting erroneous homonyms within a given sentence, and more. Answer keys have been provided for instructors.
Extra project idea: Have your students construct a Venn diagram with homographs on one side, homophones on the other, and homonyms in the middle.
