While skimming through Pinterest, I found THIS activity on “Multiple Meaning Words”. We go over homophones in my first grade classroom. We had just went over homographs (words that sound the same, differ in meaning, and are spelled alike). Last week we discussed heterographs (words that sound the same, differ in meaning, but are spelled differently).
I like the idea that the Krazy About Kiddos blogger had her first graders do. She offers a free download of her version of the activity page on her site. I created my own page so that it can be titled “homophones”, as that is the word we used in class to describe this type of vocabulary. I also wanted the directions to ask the students to highlight and for my paper’s orientation to be ‘portrait’ (so it can be displayed on my bulletin board).

I am very happy with how these turned out!
