Common Homophones and Activities

A fun way to learn vocabulary is to review homophones, or words with multiple meanings. Starting in second grade, teachers will begin to introduce words with multiple meanings.  Go through each word, such as bat or ball, and discuss all the various meanings of the word.  Have students make sentences with the word, with its various meanings.  While reading, have students discuss what they think the meaning of a word is based on the contextual cues.  Here is a list of common words with multiple meanings that students will encounter in elementary school.  There are also great activities and worksheets that you can use here!
