Homophones are words that sound alike, but differ in meaning and spelling. They are important in building a fluency bridge between word recognition and comprehension. The reader might pronounce the target word correctly, but have an incorrect meaning in mind.
Consider the difference between these two sentences:
The baker kneads the bread.
The baker needs the bread.

What parents are saying about Homophone Bingo
My kids can’t get enough!
My friend recommended I give this app a try. At first I was rather hesitant but now I am very glad I gave it a try. My kids spend hours playing games on their iPads and phones so it’s very refreshing seeing them at least play an educational game. They say the same is super fun and that the sound effects also make it so much more interesting. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with download this app because it’s free. I highly recommend it!
The best thing for me about this app is that it accommodates children of different ages and reading abilities. When the picture clues are turned on it’s great for my beginning reader but when they are turned off the challenge is greater and it can be used as a reminder tool for my older child.
Great App! Highly Recommend!
Great game to pass the time. Had my little cousins play this when they came to spend some time with me, and they loved it. They learned so many words and had a blast doing it. The visuals and sound effects of this game are also very entertaining!
