Thanks for viewing this product! This product contains 20 (mostly informational) Context Clues Task Cards perfect for all learners. We ask students to determine word meaning based on clues within a sentence, but a lot of the students rely on their background knowledge to help them solve the "unknown" word. I created this activity because I wanted to give my students a challenge of actually using clues around the unknown word... hence all the made up words in the task cards! Students are asked to rely ONLY on the clues and text evidence around the made up word. There is also a recording sheet and answer key included.
These cards can be used for modeling and whole class discussion. They can also be completed in a center, small group with the teacher, or with a partner. Simply print, cut and laminate! Please contact me if you should have any questions :)!
