Use our Online Spelling Games to Improve Your Skills

Online spelling game that provides practice in correct usage of homonyms

Our online spelling games will hone your ability, or your students' abilities, to spot spelling mistakes! This game is fun, too!  Keep kids engaged, motivated and learning when you offer them a variety of practice opportunities and formats.

How to Play Our Online Homonym Game

  1. Click on the incorrect homonym usage from among the underlined words 
  2. Type in the correct spelling on the line in the puzzle image.
  3. Press 'Enter' on your keyboard

Watch out, because we've underlined extra words in each sentence! You won't be timed, and if you get stuck, just click the "Skip" link underneath the sentence.

Why Can't Spell-check Find Homonym Spelling Mistakes?

Homonyms are sets of 2 or more words that are pronounced the same way, but mean different things. Spell-check can only see if what you've typed is a real word—which homonyms are—but spell-check can't understand the meaning of those words. Fortunately, you can understand the meanings of words, and with practice you can easily spot most homonym spelling mistakes.

The solution? Play our free spelling games based on the actual meaning of the words to train yourself to catch these pernicious spelling mistakes, and start making your resumés, college essays, and applications more professional.

Want to go deeper with homonyms? Visit Improve Spelling Skills : Choosing the Correct Homonym page to understand why some homonyms work in one sentence but not another.
