Description

This resource includes a Context Clues Worksheet Set and a Context Clues Slide Presentation.

The Context Clues Worksheet Set includes fifteen activity sheets for students to work with context clues in their reading and writing. With these worksheets, students utilize close reading skills as they get individual text based practice using the context of a word to:

Choose the Correct Word

Choose the Correct Definition

Choose Among Multiple Meanings of Words

Use Context Clues in Writing

Identify and Use Three Types of Context Clues:

Explanations

Examples

Contrast

The reading passages on these activity sheets vary from a single sentence to a full paragraph to give students more in-depth practice, and there are different question types including matching, fill-in-the-blanks, completing the sentences, choosing answers from a word bank, write-and-draw, and multiple choice.

The Context Clues Slide Presentation is a PowerPoint for introducing and practicing the reading comprehension skill of using context clues. Examples and student questions focus on close reading to choose the correct word, to define words, and to choose among multiple meanings of words. Three specific types of context clues are also addressed - explanation clues, example clues, and contrast clues.

Two sets of ten student questions are incorporated into the slides to provide practice as students learn.

The last two slides also provide a note sheet for students to complete as well as a completed version of the note sheet. Both versions are on a white background,designed to print out ahead for students to complete as they view the slides. The note sheets are in a two-column format, a good size to fold and add to a student notebook.

This Context Clues Package supports the Reading and Language standards that ask students to use the context of a word in a story to determine its meaning.
