Fifteen activity sheets for students to work with context clues in their reading and writing. With these worksheets, students utilize close reading skills as they get individual text based practice using the context of a word to:
Choose the Correct Word
Choose the Correct Definition
Choose Among Multiple Meanings of Words
Use Context Clues in Writing
Identify and Use Three Types of Context Clues:
The reading passages on these activity sheets vary from a single sentence to a full paragraph to give students more in-depth practice, and there are different question types including matching, fill-in-the-blanks, completing the sentences, choosing answers from a word bank, write-and-draw, and multiple choice.
This Context Clues Package supports the Reading and Language standards that ask students to use the context of a word in a story to determine its meaning.
NOTE: This resource includes the content from both of my two previous context clues worksheet sets updated with a new look and new clip art.
