These slides have been created to help my students to think critically about using context clues within a sentence to determine and decode words and/or their meanings. Students will read a sentence containing a complex vocabulary word and have to choose from a list to pick a synonym or antonym for that word.
This is a great resource that you can use whole group, in partners, small groups, etc. I have used this for grammar/ literacy centers for a quick check as well! There are 8 different slides, which makes for a quick assessment tool for understanding or a quick lesson as a class!
The slides are also set up with questions asking how they know or what clues they used to help them determine the answers. Integrate RL standards here by having students speak or write referencing back to the text to quote explicitly from the text to answer the question and prove their answers. There is an answer key provided for the multiple choice answers, as well as a blank recording sheet. You choose if students answer just the multiple choice or if they explain their answers!
