For this week's Family Friday, your child will put their brain power to the test with a jigsaw puzzle about homophones (words that sound the same, but have different meanings!) Children will be further familiarized with these homophones through this hands-on jigsaw puzzle. Read our step-by-step guide on how you can set up this interactive activity with your child at home!
This week, the family Friday activity incorporates the learning materials from not one, but TWO books! Open up your Footsteps2Brilliance App, and go to Level 3 (Blue). In the Homophone Riddles A-Z series, find the books Homophone Riddles A-E and Homophones Riddles E-J. Read the books with your child. Be sure to touch the illustrations to see the pictures come alive!
Print out the jigsaw board and pieces here. You can print in color or black and white! Using scissors, cut out the jigsaw pieces. This can take a little time, so don't worry about making them perfect.
Now you and your child are ready to get to work!
Have your child assemble the puzzle and match the homophones until all the pieces fit together. Tape or glue them on to the board as you go.
Hint: The pairs are color-coded and are in alphabetical order from left to right.
Homophones are hard. When your child has completed the puzzle, don't forget to give them a big high five!
