This packet includes 4 context clues worksheets. It also includes two exit tickets that can be used as you and your students progress through your context clues unit. In all, 53 practice items are included in this resource!
Pages 1 and 2 (that I would make into a 2-sided worksheet) focus on context clues that fall into the DEFINITIONS and ANTONYMS categories. The worksheet begins with explanations of the two clues, and then there are 14 practice problems where students determine the meaning of the word AND explain which type of clue was given in the sentence.
Pages 3 and 4 focus on the clues that fall into the SYNONYMS and INFERENCE categories. Again, this 2-sided worksheet begins with explanations of the two clues, and then there are 14 practice problems where students determine the meaning of the word AND explain which type of clue was given in the sentence.
Page 5 focuses only on EXAMPLE clues. Students read each sentence and determine the meaning of the underlined word. They also highlight the example clues in each of the 8 sentences.
Page 6 includes all five types of context clues and is therefore intended to be used for review. It includes 13 sentences containing underlined words, and 13 definitions. Students must match the definition to the appropriate underlined word.
Some of the word include: diminutive, toil, saunter, commence, pensive, summit, boisterous, bold, devour, incensed, frolic, massive, and elated.
Answer keys are also included.
