TO, TOO or TWO
The differences between to, two, and too can be difficult to master. Some adults still get them wrong at times. To and too can be especially tricky. It could be a fun class activity to try and come up with easy ways to remember which is which (Too has too many ‘o’s).
While homophones can be tricky to remember they can also be fun. There are riddles and limericks that use homophones to trip you up and make you laugh. Your students might even enjoy writing their own rhymes using homophones. There are many cute little homophone games online.
Exercises about homophones could also lead to a lesson about the differences between homonyms, homophones, homographs, and heteronyms. Words that sound or are spelled the same are some of the most complicated things to learn in the English language. Splitting kids into groups and getting them to come up with lists for each of these categories could be a fun way to make them work together to think about how things are spelled and realise how many of these words they already knew.
Learning about homonyms also dovetails nicely into learning about synonyms and antonyms. Younger kids may find this easier as it doesn’t require them to know how everything is spelled.
