★ Students must locate the different puzzle pieces that contain words with the same shades of meaning to put the 4-piece puzzles together.
★ One puzzle piece will be “easy” with the word and an image. The other 3 pieces will be “harder” words in sentences. Students must use their context clues knowledge in order to determine which puzzles go together.
★ To assemble: Print all puzzles and cut them apart. Laminate them. Place all puzzle pieces in the middle of a pile/table. Students can locate all of the puzzle pieces with images to start.
