Does your child or student know the difference between to, two, and too? What about break and brake? There are many ways to use your Education Cubes to help make practicing homophones more fun! Grab the Homophone insert cards and your cubes and try this activity!
Activity Instructions: The activity is super easy to set up. Select your desired Homophone cards and insert them into your cubes. Toss all the cubes at one and come up with a sentence correctly using all of the words rolled.
For example, based on the words shown on the picture above, one may say, “The boy on the plane was at peace eating coarse salt on the pretzel dough“. The sillier the sentence the better. Take turns tossing the cubes and coming up with sentences.
There are 44 sets of homophones included in the download. For younger learners, consider using less cubes or less tricky homophones.
This activity is a great way to not only practice homophones, but to also work on sentence formation. Although the sentence may be silly, it still needs to be a complete sentence and the homophone must be used correctly!
Attention Members: You can find the Homophone insert cards on the “Writing/Grammar” link found on the “Language Arts” page.
