C-5.6 Get & Use Five 18-Pair Intermediate Homophones Card Decks
5 Decks: 6-11, 36 Two-Sided cards of 18 Homophone Pairs per Deck, 180 cards (Words + Illustrated Definitions)
$8 (40 Pages)
Who They’re For: Language Students & Readers Developing Homophonic Vocabulary. Card-Players
Why You Need Them: After grasping the concept of homophones based on the most common pairings, language students will want to learn more items and have fun doing so. The 180 items in Decks 6-11 introduce less frequent + exceptional spellings, vowel sounds before –r, silent consonants, and added word endings.
What You’ll Do:
 From the Intermediate Homophones Card Decks file, download all 40 pages to print out back-to-back, flipped horizontally. Cut apart the 180 two-sided cards so that they’re all the same size and shape. Note that they can be divided into 5 separate sets of 36 cards (18 matching pairs) each, arranged alphabetically.
 If helpful, use them as “Flash Cards” to preview the language content of the cards (the homophone pairs and their illustrated definitions). Include pronunciation/spelling instruction when relevant.
 Try some of the cooperative or competitive learning activities suggested in the Using Homophones: Intermediate Activity & Idea Book. Devise even more engaging procedures.
 Alternatively, print out the 40 pages of 9 images each one-sided. Use these 180 cards for learning activities/games that involve matching: two homophones with each other, each word with its illustrated definition, and/or all four cards functioning as a “quartet.”
 Review, reinforce, and go beyond the content of the material.
