PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Thanks for viewing this product!

This product contains 24 Context Clues Task Cards that are all sports themed. We ask students to determine word meaning based on clues within a sentence, but a lot of the students rely on their background knowledge to help them solve the "unknown" word. I created this activity because I wanted to give my students a challenge of actually using clues around the unknown word... hence all the made up words in the task cards! Students are asked to rely ONLY on the clues and text evidence around the made up word.

My original intent was to make this a sports themed game as well, therefore a game board and directions are included. However, I know not all teachers can fit this into their day, so I included directions, recording sheets, and an answer key if you wanted to use these cards as a SCOOT activity, or even as task cards.

The conversations I heard my kids having about the unknown word meaning was absolutely phenomenal!
