Description: Homophones homographs (words with Multiple meaning ) are a consistent cause for sentence ambiguity and confusion. Teach multiple meaning words in several ways to ensure comprehension, this in turn, will lessen Ambiguity in sentences and improve Sentence development. This deck addresses homographs in two ways. Identifying homonyms is the first part. Can your student spot them in a sentence? Second, can they tell you the multiple meanings of each word as well as the different meanings for the same sentences? (E.g., “He didn’t want to touch the scales.”) Your students will receive 51 cards which consist of 24 ambiguous sentences. 24 fill in the blank cards, and 24 “drag for a hint” cards. I suggest running the deck as a group lesson and then assigning for HW to assess the skill. The cards work well with older students (Grades 6-10) or best when used with students who have mild cognitive delays yet good language skills. When I use this lesson with my Speech classroom it takes (60 minutes).
