Understanding how to use context clues to comprehend new vocabulary
is an invaluable reading strategy that will help students throughout their lives! Context clues are hints in the text that can help readers with unfamiliar vocabulary, which in turn increases comprehension. When readers have strategies for tackling new words, they are able to navigate more complex texts with confidence and independence
– which is our ultimate goal for our students! Intentionally teaching how to apply context clue strategies has the power to transform students from passive to active readers.
Within this resource you will find no-prep, ready to print activities to support explicit teaching of context clues. The following pages are divided into four sections:
