Due to the popularity of my first book of Use the Clues (grades 3-5), I've written a second book to provide further practice on this skill.
Use the Clues- Practice #2- Grades 3-5 is another resource to aid students to use context clues to determine the meaning of a word.
Reading comprehension lessons require students to find the evidence to support an idea. These lessons require the same skill to use for meanings of unfamiliar words.
Beginning lessons have words highlighted in a sentence to help students determine word meanings. As lessons develop, students will select the meaning and highlight the clues. Finally, they will highlight clues and write their own meaning of a word.
Examples of words used in the book are: abscond, arbitrator, potential, malicious, compliant, etc.
Examples of expressions used in the book are: you'll split your sides open, ill at ease, able to get into my head, on top of things, etc.
