We are working on homophones next week and to tell you the truth I wasn't sure the difference between homonyms and homophones. It's been a few years since I studied them in college. Did they teach them in college? So the good ole internet set me straight.
homophones are words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings. Example- deer/dear
homonyms are words that have the same spelling and sound but a different meaning. Example- train (your dog) /train (choo-choo)
And then there are homographs which are words that have the same spelling but sound different and have different meanings. Example- bow (in your hair) /bow (curtsy).
So now you know! I'm sure the little firsties will really be glad
Anyhoo, here is a little sort I put together for any and all who would like it. There is also a little worksheet for some extra practice or assessment. Just click on the picture for a free download. Graphic are from Scrappin Doodles and KPM Doodles!
I'd love some feedback if anyone cares to leave a comment!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Friday!!!
