Use these 32 multiple choice task cards to reinforce some of the more tricky frequently-used homophones. These cards focus on just these six homophone sets:
• its, it’s
• then, than,
• were, we’re
• your, you’re
• too, to, two
• there, their, they’re
Each homophone appears at least two times throughout the set. Not only will this help to solidify the words, but it may also help some students to self-correct as they work.
A student answer sheet is included along with an answer key for self-checking. There is also a Challenge Card that can be used in conjunction with any other card to extend the activity. These task cards are perfect for test prep and will work well at literacy centers, stations, for partner work, or with the whole class using a game like Scoot.
