How to Use This Product
This product purposely includes multiple versions of the same material to allow you to choose what works best for completing the activity with your students. You could have students complete the task cards on their own, in small groups/as a center, or as a whole class activity.
Additionally, you could also use this as an assessment by using one or multiple of the worksheets that are included after using some of the task cards to teach lessons/mini-lessons. There are 2 different versions of the worksheets included in order to help you differentiate to meet the needs of your students: the one version has a word bank, the other is blank.
Extras: Included are four task cards that are purposely Halloween themed. I have included these free to use within your classroom, if Halloween themed materials are allowed at your school. This is a great preview or a great way to revisit the material later. Then you will know students understand Fall Context Clues and Halloween context clues!
