Karen, sixth grade teacher
This is a fun game for learning homophones.
Select one student as "it," and send them outside (choose a kid that won't run off!) Inside, ask the rest of the class to think of 2 or 3 homophones, and write them in sentences on the board, substituting the homophone for the word 'teapot' (or choose another). Call "it" back in, and they try and work out the homophones. One point if they get the word correct, two points for each correct spelling of the word in the right place.
