How to play with these Earth Day Activities:
  • After cutting up the laminated tree cards, have the kids take one puzzle piece at a time.
  • Students will read the homophone found on the card.
  • They will then try to find a word with the same sound on another puzzle card in the deck.
  • They will then either find the meanings of the words in a dictionary or via their laptops or write a sentence with each word in their notebooks.
  • This would work well with ELL students, make sure they have access to a picture dictionary to help them identify the meanings of the words more easily.

Another way you could use these cards is to have the kids read each word and write them in their notebooks as they match the homophones right on their books. This will help them remember the words after they visually matched the puzzles.

Students are very visual, they are more likely to remember the spelling of their homophones after repeated practice of activities such as these. These words can be difficult for young learners, especially ESL learners. Activities like these puzzles will help kiddos understand the meaning and correct spelling of these unique words.
