Go Fish for Homophones

Objective The student will identify homophones.

Materials Homophone word cards (Activity Master V.005.AM1a - V.005.AM1f )

Activity Students match homophones while playing a “Go Fish” game. 1. Place the homophone word cards face down in a stack at the center. 2. Student one gives seven cards to each player and places the remaining cards face down in a stack. 3. Students check their cards for matching homophones, read them, and place the matching sets down. 4. Taking turns, student one asks for a specific homophone for one of the cards he is holding (e.g., “Do you have a card that says “eight?”) 5. If yes, the card is given to student one who reads each homophone. Holds each card up separately and uses in a sentence (i.e., “Ate, I ate all my pizza. Eight, eight is an even number”). Takes another turn. If no, student two says, “Go Fish.” Student one selects the top card from the stack. 6. Reverse roles and continue until all cards are matched. 7. Peer evaluation

Multiple Meaning Bugs

Objective The student will identify the multiple meanings of words.

Materials Multiple Meaning Bugs work boards (Activity Master V.012.AM1a - V.012.AM1f ) Copy on card stock, laminate, and cut. Meaning word circles (Activity Master V.012.AM2a - V.012.AM2b) Copy on card stock, laminate, and cut. Student sheet (Activity Master V.012.SS) Pencil

Activity Students identify multiple meanings of words while making bugs. 1. Place the Multiple Meaning Bugs work boards face up in rows. Place the meaning word circles face down in a stack. Provide the student with a student sheet. 2. The student reads each word on the head of each bug. 3. Selects a meaning word circle from the stack, reads it, and determines meaning (e.g., “lid for a bottle; that is a cap”). Places on the work board containing the corresponding word. 4. Continues until all bugs have two meaning word circles on them. 5. Selects two words and definitions from the work boards and records on student sheet. 6. Teacher evaluation

Objective The student will identify the meaning of words in context.

If the Word Fits

Objective The student will identify the meaning of words in context.

Materials Sentence cards (Activity Master V.025.AM1a - V.025.AM1b) If words in this activity are not appropriate for your students, make and use sentence cards that are more applicable. Note: The first underlined word is the target word and the second underlined word is the answer.

Activity Students identify the meaning of target words by using the context of the sentence. 1. Place sentence cards face down in a stack at the center. 2. Working in pairs, student one selects the top card from the stack and reads the sentence to student two without showing the card (e.g., “The cloud was so enormous it seemed to cover the whole sky. Was it huge or little?”). 3. Student two states the answer (i.e., “it was huge”). Student one checks to see if the answer is correct by looking at the second underlined word or phrase. 4. If correct, student one gives the card to student two. If incorrect, student one states the correct answer, shows the card to student two, and places it at the bottom of the stack. 5. Reverse roles and continue until all cards are read. 6. Peer evaluation

“The cloud was so enormous that it seemed to cover the whole sky. Was the cloud huge or little?”

The cloud was so enormous it seemed to cover the whole sky. Was the cloud huge or little?

Extensions and Adaptations Make and use other sentence cards (Activity Master V.025.AM2).
