This file includes all of the materials needed for a small group game or center of 2-4 students. The game focuses on students being able to use context clues in a paragraph to determine the meaning of a word that may be unfamiliar.
For this game, students will have a game board, playing pieces, and a dice. The object of the game is to be the first to reach the end. Students will take turns drawing cards from a pile that contain a short paragraph with an underlined word. Students will read the paragraph aloud and decide on a multiple-choice answer that correctly identifies the meaning on the underlined word. The paragraphs were written so that if students use the context of the word, they should be able to have an understanding of its meaning. Product includes the game board, student directions, student answer key, 24 context clue cards, and a template for game pieces and a dice.
Product may be used for small groups, centers, or teacher-led instruction.
The product could also be used as a set of 24 task cards to be used for a scoot game.
