Use these 32 multiple choice task cards to reinforce common multiple meaning words (homographs). Each of the featured words appears on two cards. For example, the word “duck” appears on card #1 as the waterfowl and again on card #17 as the verb, to bend down. Not only will this help to solidify the words and their meanings, 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.
Black line versions of the cards are also included for printing on colored paper.
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.
