Why and how is a song about Context Clues effective for students?
The skill of using context clues when approaching unfamiliar words is an essential key to becoming a strong reader. This song not only provides examples of how a reader can use context clues, but it defines the types of context clues good readers look for: definitions, examples, synonyms, and antonyms. The song has an encouraging chorus prompting students to persevere when struggling with unfamiliar words when reading text. The teacher in the story is the hero as the student finds success!
