PREPARATION

1. Check your computer's audio capabilities by playing the Homophones song. Be sure students will be able to hear the song.

2. Using the Homophone Reference List, write several homophones (1520) on index cards (one word on each card) for small group work.

3. Create a sample homophone comic with the Comic Creator (see step 5 below) for students to look at before they create their own comics.
