"Teaching Kids about Homophones and Homographs" is a resource by Habakkuk Educational Materials meant to help students learn the difference between the words "homonyms," "homophones," "homographs," and "heteronyms." Through the use of colorful illustrations and sentences where the key words are used in context, students will learn to differentiate between homophones like "rain," "reign," and "rein" and "two," "too," and "to." Reproducible worksheets are also available for individual practice and to assess student learning. Kids will discover that homophone words are a type of homonym but that not all homonyms are spelled differently. For example, "ruler" is also a homonym, pronounced ü-lǝr, because it can refer to either a measuring tool or to a leader. 

In addition, they will learn that not all words that are spelled alike have the same meaning or pronunciation, as in the homographs (heteronyms) "dove," referring to a bird, and "dove," the past tense of "dive."
