Context Clues Printables
These activities help students practice using context clues to help them determine the meaning of unfamiliar words!
Each piece of text is written with purposeful clues to help students determine the correct meaning of the underlined word from the two possible choices. Students are then required to write a sentence or two to explain the clues they used (clues from the text only or combined with their own schema) to determine the correct meaning.
I've used these activities in whole group, guided reading, word work station, and independent settings. They are also a great way to teach and practice test taking strategies for standardized testing.
