Homophone definitions Eclipse crossword
This crossword consists of 12 words (6 pairs of homophones) and clues based on some of the words in Nicola Tom’s homophone definition matching cards (see below). Makes a good extension or revision activity. Andrea says: ‘My learners made up some memory joggers to help them differentiate the different spellings for different meanings and I used these as the basis for the clues, which is why some are a little idiosyncratic!’
