Description

This file includes five worksheets that focus on the five types of context clues: definitions, synonyms, antonyms, inferences, and examples.

Worksheet #1: DEFINITION CLUES- Students read each item, then highlight the definition that is provided for the underlined word.

Worksheet #2: SYNONYM CLUES- Students read each item, and circle the synonym that is provided for the underlined word.

Worksheet #3: ANTONYM CLUES- Students read each item, and circle the antonym that is provided for the underlined word. Then, they write the meaning of the underlined word.

Worksheet #4: INFERENCE CLUES- Students read each item, and then use background knowledge to determine and write the meaning of the underlined word.

Worksheet #5: EXAMPLE CLUES- Students read each item, and circle the example that is provided that helps explain the underlined word. Then, they write the meaning of the underlined word.

Some of the word include: parched, patent, ailing, murky, forlorn, rapped, strict, and frugal.
