Context Clues Story Booklets provide the opportunity to learn that all readers can master the art of reading unfamiliar words. The skill of using context clues is a very powerful tool for struggling readers, developing readers and fluent readers alike.

Context Clues Story Booklets are most suitable for 3rd-4th grade, though I use these story booklets with my 2nd graders as I support them in their growth towards rigorous reading skills. I also begin context clues work with my 5th graders using stories such as these.
