Many reading programs introduce the concept of homophones in second grade. Homophones are words that sound alike but are spelled differently and have a different meaning. Our students need to be able to tell the difference in the meanings of these words and to use the correct spelling in their writing. If students misspell words or use the wrong word in writing, the reader is not likely to understand what they are trying to say. Here’s a list of common homophones that you may wish to introduce to your students.

Learning homophones can be tons of fun! One way to introduce the concept of homophones is by reading the Dear Deer book. This adorable book contains tons of examples of homophones.
There are so many activities for introducing and practicing these types of words. Classic games such as “Memory” or “I Have, Who Has” are ideal for small group instruction. The Make, Take & Teach Homophone Activity Pack contains 10 hands-on activities for introducing and practicing homophones. It’s also helpful to have homophone posters within the classroom as a reference for our young writers.
These posters and activities can also be found in the Homophones Activity Pack.
