This center resource contains eight reading centers to review and practice defining words using context clues.

Included are eight games, each consisting of a text and a game board with unknown words for the students to define.
The types of context clues are:
Games 1-4 are nonfiction texts, and games 5-8 are fiction texts.
There are a few options for using these centers:
Option 1: Print and copy the passage, and give to the students at the beginning of the week. Have the students read the text prior to going to the center. Then when they come to the center, they are ready to play the “game” and define the words using context clues from the text. The text could even be read as a whole class or sent home for homework.
Option 2: This option works well if the students will have a chance to go to the center 2-3 times a week. The first day, the students will read the text and discuss. Then on the 2nd or 3rd day, the students will “play” the game.
I have also included several options for how the students will play the game for you to choose from as well as options for assessing the students. You can check these out as well as a closer look at the centers in the preview file.
