Product Description:

Hear it is! Weight know longer! This is won grate book that shouldn't bee mist! Seriously, this is a very helpful resource. The cover says it has "more homophones than you can shake a stick at." I don't know how many that is, but 101 sound-alike pairs and triples are covered in this book via grade-leveled worksheets and other activities. Worksheets have target homophones in large lettering on the top and ten fill-in-the-blank exercises The worksheets are intended as reinforcement; you should introduce the homophones and their correct usage before having students work them. There are also additional activities or fun facts at the bottom of each page plus an entire page of additional suggestions for using the sheets. A section of graphic organizer sheets can be used to illustrate (or paste pictures of) homophones and define them. This could even be part of your instruction process prior to having students work through the exercises. A section of homophone crossword puzzles is included following the worksheets. A table tells you when you can use each puzzle (the first can be completed after using the 2nd grade sheets). Six different homophone card games are provided, complete with cards to photocopy onto cardstock and/or laminate. A final section of More Homophone Tools contains a listing of books about or using homophones; My List of Homophones student sheets (for students to compile their own lists); tongue twisters; riddles; puns; answer keys for the worksheets and puzzles; and, finally, a mega-list of homophones (maybe more than you can shake a stick at). I think it's safe to say that this is the only homophone reference/resource book you'll ever knead!

Category Description for Usage:

These materials focus on usage only - including homophones, subject/verb agreement, figurative language etc. - and do not cover grammar or mechanics.

Seems like it is a staple for most homeschooling families.

Instead of purchasing an "all inclusive" language arts program we are piecing ours together from areas my child needs more focus on

We love All About Spelling! Our oldest child has this book, and her younger sister couldn't wait to get her own copy of this book. We love that it is a consistent program that covers many years.

Much neglected area or at least it is often not given the attention it should have, so I am looking forward to using this.
Merri F on Jan 25, 2017
Looks fun and educational and a great price!
Bethany W on Nov 14, 2016
I wanted a fun way to introduce all of these for mastery. I will be using it with my 4th grader. She will do all of them as spelling this year.

test?
A shopper on Nov 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There are no tests in the All About Homophones course. Instead, there are numberous ways to practice and reinforce the learning in fun way. There are additional activities or fun facts at the bottom of each page plus an entire page of additional suggestions for using the sheets. A section of graphic organizer sheets that can be used to illustrate (or paste pictures of) homophones and define them. Additionally, there are crossword puzzles as part of the lessons material.
Can I use this with two kids or do I need to buy a set for each child?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would say each student needs a book. It's a workbook with fill-in-the-blank worksheets, all worksheets are perforated.
I already have Spelling Homophones. Would All About Homophones just be overlapping this book or does it have more homophones?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There would be a certain amount of overlap in terms of homophones covered but there are differences as well. For instance, All About Homophones covers lesson/lessen, medal/metal, and compliment and complement to name just a few of the add-ons. Another difference is that AAH separates the homophone pairs into grade levels for some of the work. Perhaps the biggest difference, though, is the variety of activities that is included in AAH compared to the single type of worksheet found in Spelling Homophones. AAH includes crosswords, games, "Fun Facts," and "Pun Play" as well as lots of other suggestions. There is also more built-in ongoing review in AAH.
