PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a step-by-step powerpoint designed to introduce the 5 types of context clues to students. Each type of context clue is presented on its own slide, and contains a definition, and an example using the word "cacophony" in a sentence. Then, there are six "practice slides", where students get to use context clues to determine the meaning of difficult "phobia" words.

UPDATE!! 4/27/13- I just added 14 more slides with test prep questions!! If you already purchased this, be sure to download this revised version!

(The slides are animated so that the answers to the questions do not appear until after the teacher clicks, indicating the class is ready to see the answer.)

The types of context clues presented include:
DEFINITION
SYNONYM OR RESTATEMENT
ANTONYM OR CONTRAST
EXAMPLES
INFERENCE

This items is also available in my Context Clues BUNDLE! If you are looking for multiple resources for teaching context clues, you may want to check this out. It features multiple activities at a reduced price.

Product Questions & Answers

On  March 11, 2014GradeThree  (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi, I really like this product, but I was wondering if you happen to have one similar for the younger grades? Thanks.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 11, 2014Deb Hanson answered:
No, unfortunately, I do not have a Context Clues PowerPoint for the younger grades. I have thought about doing one for some time, and I struggle with picking out words that most students in the younger grades might not know the meaning of, but would still be in their readability level. Thank you for writing, though. You've convinced me to think a little bit harder about this! :) Maybe this could be a summer project.... (That doesn't help you now, though, does it? :) )

Thank you for writing and expressing interest in my PowerPoints!
