Grades 2-5 Context Clue Journal: Readers often come across words that they do not understand when they are reading books. By becoming a context clue detective, you can solve the mystery of unfamilar words! This journal was created for my 3rd grade students. We used it to identify unfamilar words in our weekly stories and articles. Students use their journals to record the section of the passage that contains their chosen word. They later identify clues within the text that uncover the meaning of the word.
