Product Description
Completing this awesome context clues packet was ample cause for celebration at the 88Brains studio. Cue an exploding fist bump extravaganza quickly followed by a round of resounding high fives.

Seriously friends. We're VERY happy with this product. Let's talk about it, shall we? (If you don't have time to talk, check out the preview file. If you do have time, you should still take a peek.)

The Context Clues:

* Synonym Clues
* Antonym Clues
* Example Clues
* Root Word Clues
* Cause-Effect Clues
* Main Idea Clues
* Figurative Language Clues (Similes & Metaphors and Hyperbole & Onomatopoeia)

How We Break It Down:

Each clue receives the following star treatment:

* An introduction that includes a definition, an example, and an explanation

* A mulitple choice practice assignment

The best part...You get that TWICE FOR EACH CLUE! 2 pages of all that goodness :)


* An original passage that reviews the clue that was introduced before it. The cool thing about this is that we build as we go. This means that the each passage includes review for each clue you've already encountered. For example, the passage we use for root word clues also includes review for synonyms, antonymns, and example clues. WOW!


* After each passage is ANOTHER ACTIVITY! We provide either a matching assignment (word to definition) or a super-fun crossword puzzle!


* 120 flashcards for additional fun and practice! Yes, you read that correctly. Not one hundred. 120. These bad boys include a mixture of each of our context clue types. The front of the card contains a sentence with an underlined word and 4 multiple choice answer choices. The back, or course, contains the correct answer.

DID WE FORGET TO MENTION the 10-question multiple choice quiz we also provide? It's basically the cherry on top of this fantabulous context clue sundae, after all.
