HOMOPHONES LESSON PLAN

 

Procedure

Teachers -- tell the students: Correct spelling in writing is very important -- if your writings have misspelled words or wrong word usage, your reader may not understand what you are trying to say. Homophones are words that are very often misused and misspelled.

 

Homophones are words that have the same sound but different spelling and meaning. Here are some examples:

 

 

Examples of Homophones

bored/board

peek/peak

seize/sees

here/hear

ring/wring

knot/not

know/no

where/wear

allowed/aloud

sea/see

hear/here

red/read

past/passed

paste/paced

manner/manor

they're/their/there

 

 

Teachers: let the students brainstorm as many homophones as they can, out loud or together, in small groups. Then have each group share with the class the meanings of each homophone, letting them use the dictionary, if needed. Have them write each homophone in a sentence, for practice.

 

 

Correct Usage of Homophones

Teachers: read this out loud or write it on the board. Have the students choose which words are homophones, and replace with the correct homophone.

 

Correct usage is vital when using homophones. This is an example of what happens when homophones are not used correctly:

I love my too Ants. They came over to our manner and brought they're dog. I got too baby-sit the dog scents they were flying on a plain to a mountain peek for a ski trip. I got along well with there dog while it stayed with me, and he had a good time, even though he was scratching and trying two flea from his flees. My mom was angry, though, when he snuck into the desert leaving his knows and pause all read. I let him sleep on a caught at night, and he wagged his tale every mourning when he woke up. He stayed a hole weak, and he didn't even brake a thing!
