When writing, students often confuse and misuse words that sound alike but have different meanings. Each card in this special homonym set is illustrated to look just like its meaning, though, so students can quickly see the difference between words! Post these cards and help your students differentiate visually. Bundle all three sets and save!

Students, both younger and more advanced, often confuse words that sound alike but have different spellings and meanings. When should they use “break” versus “brake”? Or “capital,” “capital,” and “capitol?” Help them learn these tricky terms quickly and easily with Homophones™ from our Get the Picture™ line!

Each card features a single, fully-illustrated word, designed to look just like its meaning. Elsewhere in the deck is a homophone (or two!), spelled and illustrated to look like its meaning. You can display both together for a quick daily discussion, or one each day, asking students to think back to yesterday’s word and how today’s is similar and different.

Three sets are available, and each includes 42, 11″ x 4.25″ full color cards printed on coated card stock. Buy all three sets and save!

We are also proud to offer our Tricky Math Terms™ cards, a collection of math-based homophones.
