Another comical approach to teaching homonyms and homophones via
pairing words into odd scenarios. While this is one of the most fun and
engaging on this list, quite a few of the words will be unfamiliar to
young children (ie; what child knows that a young ox is called a steer
or a young goat is called a kid).
But, if you are okay with this book being a vocabulary builder as well a homonym lesson, this is a great choice.
Interest Level: Kindergarten - 2nd grade
(Although the cover says this book is for PreS-K, we think K-Gr.2 is more appropriate given the vocabulary. In fact, it might be too high for Kindergarten.)
Below are sample pages and spreads from inside this book.
