As we’re getting back in the groove after break, I work to identify what my students struggled with in the fall and review/ remediate skills my students struggled with. Homophones are a skill my students perpetually struggle with. This lesson aims to give students a quick reference table to use throughout the semester and plenty of opportunities to practice using homophones correctly.
Homophones are a tricky grammar concept for middle school students. This lesson provides quick reference notes for students to use in answering questions identifying the correct homophone and constructing their own sentences to demonstrate mastery.
Use this lesson to refresh the definition of homophones, review 24 homophones using a quick reference chart students fill out, and answer 40 questions to assess mastery.
