Context clues for unknown words and other strategies to determine meaning are covered in this 2nd and 3rd grade PowerPoint.Topics covered context clues at the word, sentence, and paragraph levels, inferring meaning, using text features, using glossaries. Each slide shows a question strategy that the reader can ask of himself to figure out the word. Examples that you can do with your students are included on the slides. Each slide also gives a hint at something important the student needs to know. Cute kid graphics make each page colorful and kid friendly. SEE PREVIEW!
It is suggested that each lesson be done separately as a quick mini-lesson, so it will take multiple days to complete. It can be used as a review done in one day. There are several choices of printables to use for children to write a word and its definition. The strategies learned are in a checklist so that students can remember them and check off the strategy that helped them know the definition. More printables without the checklists can be used after they have mastered finding definitions.
