Homophones are one of my favorite skills to teach my first graders. We have discussed homophones several times this year.. but it’s time to get serious and learn a lot about these fun sets of words.

I have finished and listed my newest unit.. Homophones in my TpT store. The link is below if you would like to check it out.

Homophones: Centers, Activities, Flash Cards, Review Sheets and More

Here is a look at what is included…


This unit focuses on 15 sets of easy homophones as an introduction to this skill.


Practice sentences, word list (colored and b&w), review sheets, cut and paste match, and a mini poster.


Center Cards & Recording Sheet


YES/NO Sorting activity


Students read each sentence and look at the underlined homophone.

If it is correct.. it goes under YES. If it is incorrect.. it goes under NO.


Black and White Flash Cards- I printed these on colored cardstock.

027   028

And cute little crab flashcards .. These will be great recognition practice or I can use them as a matching activity in the pocket chart.
