Having students identify the part of speech an unknown word is can help them determine an appropriate synonym. If a student knows the unknown word is an adjective, they can narrow down possible ideas into describing words. They then use the context clues around the word to further help them determine the meaning. These 12 task cards ask students to identify the part of speech of an underlined word and then use context clues to come up with a possible synonym. Included is a recording sheet, direction page, and answer key. Enjoy!
