Help your students improve reading fluency and comprehension with these activities. The instructional page provides definitions and examples for four types of context clues. Practice sentences can introduce or reinforce the skill of using context to unlock the meaning of unfamiliar words.

Three separate passages provide a more challenging practice that requires students to match unfamiliar words from the passage with the correct definition. The test is best used with low to average readers, while the passages will challenge stronger readers. Answer keys are available for the three passages and the test.

Contents of the Plan:

One page of student notes with definitions and examples
