See the Yak Yak - Charles Ghigna,Brian Lies

See the Yak Yak is a greta story for any classroom when teaching homophones and homonyms. The story is very simple but very helpful. It helps with depicting the difference between the meanings of two words that are spelt the same or similar with different meanings. thee are countless activities that could be done using this book but the one that comes to mind would be a center where the students would match the homophones and homonyms together with the correct match. The students will then construct a sentence using the words matched. I would rate this book a four and a half out of five stars and is listed as a 10L on the Lexile scale.

See the Yak Yak is a great book for children who are learning about homonyms. This book is a great hook for a lesson before learning about homonyms. The illustrations help beginning readers decode simple text and help children notice the rhymes throughout the book. I would read this in a first grade classroom.

See the Yak Yak is a great book for children who are learning about homonyms. This book is a great hook for a lesson before learning about homonyms. The illustrations help beginning readers decode simple text and help children notice the rhymes throughout the book. Towards the end of the book, the goal is for the students to learn that words that sound alike,  can have different meanings. I would read this in a first grade classroom.

This book is good for teaching a lesson about Homonyms in a fun way. I would use this in my classroom for learning new words and for teaching that the same word can have different meanings. I think the reading level is preschool and kindergarten but I think it can be used in any grade level that needs examples for homonyms. The Lexile Level is 10L.

"Amelia Bedellia 4 Mayor" by Herman Parish
Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor (I Can Read Level 2) - Herman Parish,Lynn Sweat

Amelia Bedelia takes everything people say literally but always does what she says she is going to do.  This leads the town to the idea that Amelia Bedelia should run for Mayor. Along the way she confuses homophones, homonyms, and idioms for different meanings. Students could use this book when learning about homophones, homonyms, and/or idioms. They could read the story and identify each homophones, homonyms, and/or idioms and tell what the characters actually meant versus what Amelia Bedelia mistakes it for.
