Did you say pair or pear?

To introduce our study of homophones, I showed students the following photo:

They had to figure out what was the same.  They did, those little smarties! Next, I read the book Dear Deer


We continued our study of homophones with a homophone concentration game. We also read many books throughout the week.
If You Were a Homonym or a Homophone (Word Fun)
Bella Blew Blue Bubbles (Homophones Level II)My Deer Is a Dear (Homophones)
Finally, as a review, we made a "pair of pears," inspired by First Grader at Last
