Thanks for participating in our fun product swap. As part of the swap, I picked out a great center activity from fellow blogger, and TPT seller Meredith Berry from Teaching with a Twist.
It’s called Happy Bells Homophone Match up. My students love to write, but constantly confuse their homophones. I’ve read so many papers where students write that they went to a great “sail” over the weekend, or about what they will do over Thanksgiving “brake”. When I saw Meredith’s product, I knew it was a perfect center activity for my class.
After I downloaded Meredith Berry’s product, I put it to work in my classroom. My students loved the activity. Here they are at work pairing up the homophones.
Afterwards, there were some practice sheets which I had them do to see if they really got it.
This week, my students asked if they could do the homophone center again. Needless to say, I happily agreed. I introduced Meredith’s second activity with the cards. Students pulled a card and then had to correctly use the homophone in a sentence. They liked this activity just as much. It was definitely more challenging. When students used the word incorrectly, I offered the word to another player. The student with the most cards at the end was the winner.
Feel free to visit more blogs participating in our product swap. Each blog is hosting a fun giveaway,
and it’s a great opportunity to learn about other products teachers found useful in their classrooms. You can click on Meredith Berry’s blog to see my product “Teaching Onomatopoeia Through Song” in action. That lesson is also on sale this week in my TPT store.
