Context Clues for New Readers
Here is a fun way to practice using story context to make sense of what one is reading! This product includes 32 mini cards with one sentence on each. There is a missing word from the sentence with three picture choices to choose from below that make the sentence make sense. Students simply read the sentence with the blank and decide which word/picture makes the most sense or fits "best".
This low prep activity simply needs to be printed, cut, laminated, and clothespins or clips added to it. An alternative way to use this product is to include a dry erase marker so students can circle the part in the sentence that led them to the correct answer. Also, you can print these in gray scale, copy onto colored tag board, and use a hole punch to eliminate incorrect answers, leaving the correct answer only. Any of these ways will give your students practice using the context of the story at a beginner reading level.
And here is what previous buyers are saying about this product:
Lori P. said, "I used to make my own cards to teach my youngest students to read to the end of a sentence and figure out an unknown word. I also teach context clues. It was difficult to come up with appropriate sentences, however. These will save me time and frustration as I teach the above strategies."
Wendy Wished said, "These are just what I needed for my students to carry over their skills into real reading and test like situations. Thanks for creating this."
Amanda J. said, "These are my new favorite for stations! My students LOVE them!"
