Quick and easy task cards for your Word Study center! Words were chosen specifically from lists of frequently appearing words in fifth grade level texts.
Students are asked to read sentences and infer the definition of unknown words using context clues of all types- opposites, given examples, stated definition, etc. Students then record the word, inferred definition, and evidence on an answer chart.
Differentiated: the purple set asks students to generate a definition on their own, and the yellow set provides multiple choice answers.
