What is a homonym? Homonyms are words that sound the same but have different meanings and different spellings.
The Homonyms app will help you master commonly misspelled 'sound alike' words in the English language as well as the meaning(s) of the words. Homonyms gives you a sentence and the possible homonym(s) that can be used to complete the sentence correctly -- your task is to choose the correct homonym.
With over 200 sentences covering 56 groups of the most common homonyms in the English language, this app will help you gain confidence and mastery of common homonyms and its meaning.
I've been looking for an app to help my students review homonyms. This app is simple, thorough, and easy to read (thank you for the lovely, large font sizes). Works great on my iPad, but please let me know when/if an iPad version ever becomes available. This app is going to get a workout in my classroom.
One of the sentences in the app is “Do you know were ____ house is?” Choose their, there, or they’re… How do you expect kids to learn good grammar from an app that doesn’t know the difference between where and were?!?!?! Other than that the app is decent enough. Although I don’t know how many more grammatical errors I will find as we continue to use it.
Incorrect use of homonyms
An app that teaches homonyms should use them correctly. This app doesn't.
