These context clue task cards are ideal for literacy centers or other station work. Not only do the cards focus on using context clues to determine the meaning of unknown words, but the 28 task cards actually form a detective mystery with a reading comprehension option! To cover the second grade CCSS standard, students use context clues to determine the meaning of the unknown word. Additionally, these task cards are no prep and ready to use! No laminating, no cutting, even no printing! These digital task cards were created for use in Google Slides.
Did I also mention it can be used on tablets? Say what? Yup, you can use this on a tablet, computer, or you can even project them with a SMARTboard! In fact, this actual set, you could just use a projector and whiteboard, so no SMARTboard needed! Simply let the students use a dry erase marker on the board if you don't have access to a Smartboard. Although, there will be limits on being able to slide the magnifying glass without a SMARTboard, but students can still circle the answers with a dry erase marker. Of course, the whole whiteboard/ SMARTboard part is just one of the options. These can be used simply with just a computer or tablet because they are very versatile! *Tech specs below.

What I LOVE about Google Apps When It Came to Creating This Resource:
•Their work saves automatically!
•Because their work saves automatically, its super easy to check their work (and not bring home a heavy bag full of paper clutter!)
•Kids love using technology. It's engaging!
•It can be used on a tablet too!
•It saves on ink costs!
***There are some technical requirements to use this resource. First off, this resource is in Google™ Slides format, so you will need to access to that software to use this resource. For teacher led instruction such as using a SmartBoard for whole instruction or a tablet while working with a small group, you can use Google Drive to access Google Slides. Google Drive is free to set-up with an email account. However, there are age restrictions with setting up an email. If you want students working in their own accounts/projects, you are going to need Google Classroom to access Google Slides. This resource is free too, but at this time, it is only available to non-profit educational institutions and you will need to get your school on board with it. If you don't have Google Classroom, please get with your tech department to set this up before purchasing this resource. You will also need internet access to use this resource. This resource is no prep to those who already have Google Drive or Google Classroom set-up.***
***For Interactive Whiteboard/ Smartboard use: To use any dragging/dropping features, your interactive whiteboard will need the feature that performs mouse functions with touch in programs outside of their software. Basically, the touch feature takes the place of how you would use a mouse in other applications such as Google Slides, surfing the internet, etc. If using. This feature that allows the computer to use touch on the screen to function like a mouse may sometimes only work in the software of whatever brand interactive whiteboard you are using, so make sure you can use that feature in other applications before purchase if you plan to use this resource on an interactive whiteboard.***
Please note, this resource is for personal, classroom use only. One license is for one teacher. Also, I am not affiliated or associated with Google, nor do they endorse this resource. This resource for compound words is simply a resource that can be used with their software/apps.
