Learning Objective

Students will use context clues to determine the meanings of unknown words. Students will add a context clues page to their interactive notebook and use it as needed.


This includes 5 posters that teach various types of context clues. The five types of context clues included in this poster set are: synonyms, antonyms, definition, inference, and examples. The posters show how context clues are provided to help the reader understand the meaning of the word "bland".

An interactive notebook activity is also part of this product.

I encourage you to take a peek at the PREVIEW!! It shows many of the pages clearly so that you can see exactly what you'd be purchasing.
