What's included?
Task Card Set #1: Nonsense Words. Use this set of task cards with nonsense words to work on the SKILL of context clues. These task cards are not designed to teach new vocabulary. Once your kids can do THIS part of Context Clues, they’ll be able to effectively use context clues when faced with the challenge of real vocabulary words.

Task Card Set #2: Content-Area Vocabulary. Use this set of task cards once your students have practiced the concept of Context Clues. These are social studies, science, ELA, and mathematics terms aimed at Grades 3-5 students.
★Three blank task card templates to fill in your own Context Clues sentences or questions.
★Answer keys.


--> Option 1: Print out the cards and have students SCOOT the cards in a circle around the room. The cards move, the kids don’t.
--> Option 2: Print out the cards, tape them all around your classroom, and have students SCOOT around the room with their answer sheets. The kids move, the cards don’t.
--> Option 3: Each student gets their own set of cards. This might be helpful if your students are struggling to find the actual CLUES in the writing. Students highlight or mark up the cards.
