The students will identify variant correspondences in words by playing a bingo word game.
- Bingo cards (Activity Master AP.001.AM1a - AP.001.AM1b)
Each card has different words.
Homophone word cards (Activity Master AP.001.AM2a - AP.001.AM2b)
- The student will identify variant correspondences in words.
Students match homophones by playing a bingo-type game.
1. Place the word cards face down in a stack. Provide each student with a different bingo card.
2. Taking turns, students select the top card and read the word (e.g., arc).
3. Look for the matching homophone on the bingo card. If there is a match, spell each word and state the difference in the spelling pattern. For example, “Arc is spelled a-r-c and ark is spelled a-r-k. The /k/ sound is spelled with a ‘c’ in one word and a ‘k’ in the other.” Place the word card on the corresponding word on the bingo card (e.g., ark).
4. If no match, return card to the bottom of the stack.
5. The game is finished when one bingo card is covered with word cards and a student says “Homophone Bingo!”
6. Peer evaluation
Record the homophones and circle the spelling differences
(Activity Master AP.001.SS1a - AP.001.SS1b).
Make other bingo and corresponding word cards (Activity Masters AP.001.AM3, AP.001.AM4).Write sentences to demonstrate the meanings of the homophones.
use homophones correctly in sentences
