The objective of this activity book is to have your students determine the meaning of words that have more than one meaning by using context clues and to be able to clearly articulate the definition in writing. My goal with this book is to empower every student to use this strategy on his/her own so whether reading independently, reading with another adult, or reading with peers, it can be applied to figure out which definition of a particular multiple-meaning word fits a particular sentence.
In this book, you will find 20 student activity sheets that will require the students to write their own definitions for eight homonyms (2 separate sentences/meanings for each one). These sheets also contain a section where students can write the part of speech for each multiple-meaning word. Also with your download purchase, you’ll receive an additional 20 worksheets. This set contains the same sentences/multiple-meaning words as the first set, however, it has been adapted. On these sheets, your students will be required to select the correct definitions from four multiple choice options instead of having to come up with a definition on their own. And finally, you will receive answer keys for both of the above sets. But please keep in mind that the definitions given in my answer keys are the dictionary definitions and should not be the only acceptable answers. Your students will come up with a wide variety of responses depending upon the vocabulary development of each.
Thank you in advance for your purchase.
