The Techie Teacher


This is my all time FAVORITE Powerpoint for teaching context clues. The beginning of the presentation explains what context clues are and why they are important. The lesson wraps up by having students guess what some nonsense words mean as context clues are added to sentences. Students really get into this and it also shows them how adding details to their writing makes it easier to understand! Mid-way through the PP there is a link to SafeShare video that will take you to an audio file for a Context Clues song.

The Guessing Game (4 Rounds)

Students can guess the meaning of the context clues in a variety of ways:

★ Use a Today's Meet chatroom to submit guesses UPDATE: Today's Meet has shut down. A good alternative is Yo! Teach

★ Write guesses on an individual white board

★ Write guesses in a journal

★ Think, Pair, Share (each round students could partner up with someone different)

**This PowerPoint is also available in my store as a presentation in Google Slides™**
