A sample extract from the resource:

You will be making a homophone game in groups to test another group on their knowledge of common homophones (and which spelling to choose).

You’ll need a dice to play and a counter for each player, or cut out the counters and dice below.

For the squares, write a forfeit OR a rule to help to remember different homophones.

For the circles, add a sentence with a missing homophone to fill in.

For the diamonds, add a rule for playing the game.


Some examples have been added to help you get started.

When you have completed your game board, swap it with another group and play using theirs!
