escanear0005I mentioned a few weeks ago that I would begin to post links to learning games and videos that can help students master the new standards.

Today’s link will lead you to some homophone games.

Homophones are words that sound the same, but have different meanings. Usually they are spelled differently, but they can also be spelled the same. An easy way to remember this is to remember that you listen and speak when you are on a phone. When you hear the word “phone” in homophone, remember that it means that the words sound the same or are pronounced the same. Here are some examples of homophones that are spelled differently and have different meanings:

paws/pause         flee/flea         pole/poll          ate/eight           one/won
