Homographs Worksheets

Related ELA Standard: L.5.5.C

Core Standard

Homographs are where the English language really goes off of the rails and really confuses non-native speakers. This is because you will have two different words that have the exact same spelling, but they mean something different entirely and in some cases, they have different pronunciation. Often the meanings of the homographs can be deciphered through the context that they are used in. Mastering the use of words that fall into this category is vital because it will lead to fluency in both written and spoken forms of language. I find that this is where most students stumble when reading aloud. I would encourage students when you come across this and express that this is a common pitfall of the English language. The worksheets in this collection will help students understand where homographs fall into the whole language skills section.
