Using context clues in a passage to determine word meaning is a skill that is practiced from an early grade and is important for readers to use throughout their lifetime to comprehend text. This skill is so important, that it is tested several times throughout the school year in the reading series that our county adopted. My teammate and I like to have a rotation day on Halloween where we still are practicing skills that are important to our students, but in an engaging way.
My original intent was to make this a Halloween themed game as well, therefore a game board and directions are included. However, I know not all teachers can fit this into their day, so I included directions, recording sheets, and an answer key if you wanted to use these cards as a SCOOT activity, or even as task cards.
