Students will enjoy this colorful flipchart, that is structured around the guided release teaching method, to show kids how to use context clues to determine word meanings. After an "I can" statement and the written common core standard to determine the meanings of words, students tie the objective into past learning and state what will be expected of them at the end of the lesson. The teacher discusses what context clues are and tips to use other words to determine the meaning of an unknown word through modeling. After modeling, the class does two examples together. A slide reminds students of the teaching objective before they are asked to find the meanings of two words with a partner. Finally, students complete the exit ticket for independent practice and apply their new vocabulary to write a story. This lesson is perfect for evaluations.
