This purchase includes 18 informational context clues task cards, recording sheet, and answer key.
Each task card, in Part A, asks the student what the meaning of the underlined word means in the text. With our new state’s assessment, I’ve been seeing many questions that have two parts to it, therefore I felt the need to add a Part B to most of the task cards.. This will allow students to dig deeper into the text to find support for the unknown word. Part B questions will range from :
*asking the student to pick which word or phrase from the text best support their answer in Part A
*asking the student to pick the two best words or phrases (multiple, multiple choice) that helps them best support their answer.
*writing down the meaning of the word without multiple choice
*asking the student how they know what a particular word means based on what the author (me ) included in the text.
I would definitely recommend modeling a few of the cards with your students.
I usually print out the task cards, laminate, and place on binder rings so the passages are easy to flip through. Or, you can use these cards for the game, SCOOT. They are perfect for center work, or even at your teacher rotation time.
