These context clue task cards (or scoot cards) are a fun and engaging activity for students to practice finding clues in text that help them decipher the meaning of words. This activity can be differentiated depending on which recording sheet you choose to have your students use. One recording sheet simply requires students to answer the question with their choice of A, B, or C. The more rigorous answer sheet requires students to record both their letter answer and identify what the clue was in the text that led them to their answer. Answer keys are included for both recording sheets for your grading convenience!
Feel free to check out the preview to see if this activity is a good fit for your classroom needs!
The words featured on the cards are great tier two vocabulary words that students can use to improve their writing!

Teacher Note: I have found it helpful to remind students that they should choose the answer that describes the meaning of the bold and underlined word. They are not necessarily choosing a word that can replace the underlined word and still sound okay in the sentence. (I've noticed this to be a common misconception among kids when dealing with context clue questions on assessments!)
