PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 4-passage resource gives students the opportunity to practice constructing the meaning of words and phrases within a text. I created these practice passages to address CCSS RL.5.4 and RI 5.4: Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative language such as metaphors and similes.

This file contains two resources.

The first resource includes one fiction and one nonfiction reading passage. After students have read an entire passage, they write in complete sentences to respond to the 8 short-answer questions. Sentence starters are included on these two worksheets and students are expected to use them as they respond:
-Based on evidence from the text, I inferred that _____ means…
-Because of prior knowledge, I know that _____ means…
-I used context clues to infer that _____ means _____. The phrase(s) in the text that helped me to infer the meaning was/were…
-I inferred that _____ means _____. I inferred this because…

The second resource includes 1 fiction and 1 nonfiction reading passage, as well. This time, however, when students finish reading each passage, they answer seven multiple choice questions for each text. (I intend to use this resource as my end-of-unit assessment.)

Answer keys are included.
