Homophones, as we all know, are two or more words which have a different spelling but the same pronunciation, for example, son and sun. One way to make the presentations of homophones more interesting is their inclusion in an amusing or interesting story. Students read the story and have to identify and correct the homophones. Here is a brief example :
Eye woke up this morning and went too have breakfast. As usual, I eight to eggs and sum bacon. I looked out of the window to see what the whether was like. The son was shining, witch was amazing, because it had been raining all knight etc etc etc
Okay, so this story was neither amusing nor interesting, but it should give you an idea of how to do it!
