As many as a third of "spelling" errors in English involve homophones, words that sound the same but are spelled differently. This book helps teachers tailor instruction to their own students' needs with an all-purpose lesson for introducing commonly confused homophones, worksheets for 130 sets of commonly confused words with answers, definitions, parts of speech, word histories and mnemonics. All homophones taught in Spelling Plus and Spell Well are included.
You may wish to watch the Spelling for Success workshop to see how the author incorporated homophones into her spelling program.
By popular demand, she includes a list of her recommendations as to which homophones should be taught at which grade levels. But she's quick to state that she's not not the final authority and that these are just recommendations.
