My students loved this activity!!! In fact, they begged to do more. First they worked with partners to read and figure out their mystery (nonsense) word. Then they read their script to the class and the class had to figure out the mystery word. Not only did we practice context clues, but we also practiced reading fluently and listening for details in a text read aloud!
I am so excited about this new product! Get your students excited about context clues! Included are 24 context clues conversation scripts that you can use for a partner activity, short reader's theater scripts, task cards, or a scoot. All 24 scripts have a nonsense word (easily decodable) in them. Students are responsible for using context clues to determine what real word should replace the nonsense word in the script. The 24 cards are presented 2 ways. First with 2 copies of each script on each page to be used as a reader's theater. Then with 2 scripts on each page to be cut apart for task cards or a scoot. 2 student response forms and an answer key are included! Enjoy!
