Hello Mrs Sykes Jennifer Sykes

What educators are saying

I used this for part of my RTI time during summer school. I love finding interactive games that engage students but also teach them at the same time! Thank you!
This was such a great resource for test prep! Thank You. My students had so much fun playing the game.


Do your students struggle with Context Clues? Use this game for mini-lessons, whole group lessons, an interactive literacy center, or as a springboard for whole class discussions. With this interactive PowerPoint game, your students cheer as it provides immediate feedback when you click on your answer choice. It's chock full of engaging tier-two style words, as it contains the first 20 multiple choice questions from my bestselling Context Clues Task Cards set 1. Since I am in the process of converting these to digital, the game is on sale so you can snatch it up before next year! #TPTtech
