We created this chart to help us with the concept of homoPHONES today...then we used our trusty business sized envelopes to create some phones to store our homoPHONE words inside of...
The kids used regular index cards and folded them in half to add the words and pictures for the homophone pairs.
You can read more about creating the homophones at teachers.net gazzette
You can download the homophone lesson from my webpage. I also have some downloads for the story "Dear Deer" and "The King Who Reigned" posted on my webpages too. We'll continue to add to our homoPHONES the rest of this week and use the words from our cards in the writing that we do....it was fun to watch the kids texting in the words to their phones...even had a few that were pretending to talk into the phones as they were composing their pictures and sentences.
