Upper elementary students need lots of extra practice using context clues to determine the meaning of unknown words in text, then confirming their answer by looking the word up in a dictionary. 5th and 6th grade students also need lots of encouragement to stay motivated with a task. This is the perfect combination to keep your students on-task and engaged in their learning. They will read a sentence from a task card, identify the context clues, use a dictionary to confirm, and then determine the meaning of an unknown word. They will confirm their thinking with a self checking system. There are 20 interactive cards in the set.
