Homophones Matching Game… Just Play Like Dominoes!

Homophones Matching Game Third Grade Dominoes

What is a homophone? Easy! There are different definitions of homophones in many dictionaries. I stick to the basic rule: If the prefix ‘homo’ means ‘same’ and ‘phone’ comes from the word ‘phoneme’ which means ‘sound’, then the term ‘homophone’ means ‘same sound’. This definition is simple and easy to remember.

Homophones Meaning and Examples

Homophones can be found as pairs or triplets. Think of write, right and rite – that’s a triplet. The doubles are more common, such as peace/piece, stare/stair, cent/sentcereal/serial, whether/weather, patience/patients, sweet/suite, etc.
