These are the words that sound the same, but have different spellings and definitions.

It doesn't matter when you are speaking, but when you are writing, it makes all the difference in the world. The following collection of activity sheets will teach your students how to spot and interpret homophones. Students will be asked to choose the correct homophone using sentence context clues. Activities include fill in the blank, choosing the correct term from a given word bank, defining given sets of homophones, correcting erroneous homophones 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.
