We talked about them extensively... my EL's have a hard time with these, but they are really hanging in there this year! We used our anchor chart and I gave them several examples to start our list. Then we read a few books that helped us add to our list...
Later they got to play a homophone match up game. My kiddos love to get "scrambled" and then hunt to find their match, so we play games like this often :) After they found their match, each pair came to the front to explain why they were homophones and what each word meant.
|this pair was meet and meat! Don't you love the shirt tucked into the sweats...lol... oh, first graders!|
|knight and night :)|
And how about a copy of the workshop sheet my kiddos did? Click the pic to download :)
