PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This spy themed context clue pack includes three learning activities, including a guided mini lesson, a spy kit note taking activity, and an independent practice activity.

This pack also introduces six reading strategies students can use to determine the meaning of unfamiliar words:
1. Look in the sentence before the word
2. Look in the sentence after the word
3. Look before or after a comma near the word
4. Look before or after the word "or" near the word
5. Look before or after words like "called, such as, or known as."
6. Replace the word with a synonym

Guided Mini Lesson:
Introduce context clues using the question and information slides that will generate a class discussion. The mini lesson also includes 3 guided practice examples to demonstrate how to use context clues. During this lesson, students will determine the meaning of nonsense words, identify context clues, and explain how they connected the clues to their schema. A teacher guide, student recording sheet, and answer key are also included.

Spy Kit:
Provide additional practice by introducing the Context Clues Spy Kit. Students will create a spy kit and learn how to use 6 strategies to help indentify context clues. An example sentence accompanies each of the 6 clues. During this lesson, students will determine the meaning of unfamiliar words, identify context clues using a specific strategy, and explain how they connected the clues to their schema. A teacher guide, student recording sheet, and answer key are also included.

Independent Practice:
This independent practice activity can be used in any way you choose and is designed to evaluate students’ understanding of context clues. I have included two versions of each sentence card. The large version can be displayed to your entire class during a quick check for understanding or the smaller version can be used during small group instruction or as a literacy station. During this activity, students will determine the meaning of unfamiliar words, identify context clues, and use a specific strategy. A teacher guide, student recording sheet, and answer key are also included.
