- A4 paper
- Coloring crayons or dry erase markers if you choose to laminate the activity
- Scissors (to cut and separate the cards)
Print as many sets as you need for the number of groups in your class. If you are using these in a center, it’s a great idea if you have an extra set just in case you want another group to get started on the activity. There are 8 puzzle sets (16 homonym word cards) in total and a recording sheet.
Need to introduce homonyms to your first grade kiddos? Want to include a fun theme that kids can easily identify with? Need to grab their attention and engage them? These cards are burger themed cards. Every child LOVES burgers! Engage them by having them complete these fun homonym puzzle cards.
After you’ve laminated the cards, cut and separate them. Have a set for each group along with their recording sheets. The kids will begin to build the ‘burger homonym cards’ then identify the images and write the words on their homonyms worksheets. They continue to do this until all the words have been matched. It’s a good idea to write the words on the board before beginning the activity, so that the kids are familiar for what they are looking for. This will also help ELL kids identify the images and link them to their words.
