PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This second and third grade activity is designed for a small group. There are three color-coded sets of nine context clues. Each set contains nine sentence cards, a page of answer cards to be cut and distributed to students, and an answer key. Each sentence is on a separate card in large print, so that it can be read by all members of a small group. The answers are to be cut apart and distributed to the students in the group. (The answers vary somewhat in difficulty to accommodate a diverse group. I am usually careful when I pass them out.). The group reads the sentence and the child with the answer card indicates that he has the answer. Discussion of hints used to determine the meaning should follow. When I am down to the last two or three sentences, I display the remaining sentences so that the answer is not obvious.
This activity is designed for a small group, but could also be used in centers.
NOTE: The students to not have to be able to pronounce the bolded word. The skill being practiced is context clues. It is acceptable for students to say "blank" at the bolded word. The skill is building use of context clues. Any vocabulary that the students gain during the lesson is a bonus.
