Worksheet Overview

Some words sound alike but are spelt differently and have totally different meanings.


These are called homophones.


woman listening


The Greek word 'homo' means 'same' and 'phone' means 'sound'.


In this activity, we will be looking at homophones and writing the correct one to complete each sentence.

Homophones are sometimes spelt differently depending on whether they are nouns or verbs. So, in this activity we will also be looking at word class. This means whether a word is a noun, adjective, verb etc.


Here's a reminder:

Noun - is a naming word or a person, place or thing

Adjective - is a word that describes a noun

Verb - is an action word

Adverb - describes how you do the verb

Preposition - describes where something is


Let's get started on those questions!
