This resource is designed to help your students develop strategies to understand the meaning of unfamiliar words while they are reading. I chose vocabulary words that will be unfamiliar or only vaguely familiar to your students and provided various levels of context to assist them in determining the meaning of those words. In this resource, students will use restatements, synonyms, antonyms, inferences, examples, definitions, and the word’s place in a sentence to determine its meaning.
This resource includes everything you will need to practice vocabulary and context clues with your students. I’ve included THREE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF EACH PASSAGE for you to easily differentiate in your classroom! There are also matching, multiple-choice questions and short-answer questions for your students to practice vocabulary and context clues.
Included in this Resource:
This resource contains ten differentiated informational text passages. There are three levels of each passage so you can easily differentiate with your students. The levels are based on word count and Lexile levels, which can be found in the top left corner of each passage.

Combination of Short-Answer and Multiple-Choice Questions
The passages include various types of matching, multiple-choice, and short-answer questions. The questions become increasingly complex as students progress through the resource. Initially, the questions require students to match words to their meaning using restatements, examples, antonyms, and synonyms for context. As students progress through the resource, they will also be required to use inferences and a word's part of speech or position in a sentence for context. Additionally, students will have to go beyond identification and also explain which words or phrases (context) helped them understand the meaning.
