What awesome resources are included?

★ Two levels with two codes to crack: The first level is recommended for grades 2-4, and the second level is recommended for grades 5-8

★ A review worksheet for each level


How can you use this product?

★ Print, laminate, and visually display the “confidential” file. One side will say the word “confidential,” and the other side will say the “code” for students to figure out.

★ Each card will contain a sentence with a bolded/underlined word. Students must identify the meaning of that word using their context clues strategies. If they respond correctly, then there will be a letter provided on their card. They may hold onto their “clue.” If students respond incorrectly, then the card with their “clue” should go back into the pile to be tried again. Once all of the cards are used, students should work together to unscramble the letters to “crack the code” or to solve the mystery.
