Homonym Echoes Worked Well.....well...

When the students came in the other day I started speaking in echoes.  It definitely piqued their interest.  They looked on the board and noticed the information about homonyms,and Hairy Harry, and I could see their little brains working to see if they could make a connection.
 That is always fun to see!  They started speaking in echoes as well.  We discussed what homonyms were and played the +10 game.  They each started out with 10 points, I would say a word, if it was a homonym the students would have to repeat it.  If they didn't when they should have or did when they shouldn't have, they lose a point. Whoever ended up with the most points at the end was the winner. The winner was able to keep Hairy Harry's cousin, Herman at his/her desk.
My little girl was the first to get him and she really enjoyed his visit. :-)
Then I had a worksheet that I made up for them to review with. I revamped it a couple of times since I gave it to the students, so now I have a new sheet for them to work on. It's not as great as some of the other wonderful worksheets I have seen on other blogs, but I was inspired by you and excited about doing it! I finally finished it today as I was sitting at home trying to rest my back. It's getting better, slowly.
I also have no idea how to really put it on here, but looked at some other blogs for an idea. So, we'll see if this works.
