I created these because my students needed practice with using context on the sentence level to determine unfamiliar words. The problem was they kept trying to sound out the words and guess their meaning! So I started using “nonsense” words that couldn’t POSSIBLY be a real word to get them really focusing on the clues around the word – and it worked! My students love task cards, so I created this specifically to allow them to work at their own pace on this skill.
I created two levels of “support”:
One Recording sheet has multiple choice answers
One Recording Sheet is left blank to allow students to create their own answer
I did not create a specific Answer Key because at times more than one word can be written on the open ended” Recording Sheet. I have varying levels of learners so I have also allowed my students to "draw" and label the answer in the box as well. Any of those methods has really allowed me to assess and understand their knowledge of using context and of the language and vocabulary.
There are 20 task cards total and 2 different Recording Sheets to pick from depending on need.
Interested in more Reading Based Task Cards? I also created a similarly designed set for Multiple Meaning Words
