Get a free template for a student-created homophone book using these free worksheets! Children will love using these worksheets to create a book for learning and reviewing the meaning and spelling of common homophones.
💜 Why We Love It
This student-created book is made up of our free homophones worksheet. These worksheets provide targeted practice writing and reading the words and connecting them to pictures and meaning.
They can be used ongoing throughout the year as students build their vocabulary and understanding of homophones. You can use our homophones list to keep track of the words you’ve taught!
The worksheets are perfect for teaching homophones: Words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings.
The worksheets include space to:
- Write the words.
- Write the kid-friendly definitions or meanings.
- Draw the pictures. Kids can get creative and draw any picture that may represent the meaning of the word!
These three components will enable students to connect the written word to its meaning using a visual that they will remember, and this connection will help store the word in the child’s memory!
🧒🏽👩🏼 Students love these worksheets because they are fun, engaging, and effective. They have fun tracking progress of how many homophones and new vocabulary they learn throughout the year!
👨🏽🏫 Teachers love these worksheets because they are no-prep, targeted, and intentional. All you’ll need are some copies, crayons, and some brass fasteners.
Use these same worksheets for whatever homophones you are teaching. Whether you’re in first grade teaching the words one/won or in sixth grade teaching effect/affect, they work for them all!
Using the Worksheets
The resource includes:
- A title or cover page for the book.
- A reproducible page for 2 homophone word sets (like won/one).
- A reproducible page for 3 homophone word sets (like there/their/they’re).
Included on the page are separated spaces for the words, meanings, and a pictures. This reminds learners that homophones words will sound exactly the same, but have different meanings and spellings!
Print one copy of the cover page for each student on colored cardstock. Print multiple copies of the inside pages for each student.
Every time you teach a new homophone, kids can complete a page and add it to their booklet!
This resource, along with lots of spiral review, will help strengthen students’ vocabulary, spelling, and general knowledge of the English language.
At the end of the year, students go home with a large compilation of their work that will demonstrate all they’ve learned about specific homophones.
