Help to build your students vocabulary by using this bundle. I have combined my Context Clues Task cards & Vocabulary reading Comprehension passages together to be able to practice this skill over time in the classroom, for tutorials, or for a homeschooling parent.
The Context Clues Task Cards INCLUDE:
These 27 task cards will help your readers understand what they read even better! This packet is perfect for test prep or to be used throughout the year as vocabulary practice. I have used vocabulary words from previous state tests for the cards.
The first few slides are teacher examples, use them to show your readers where they find context clues in the text. The examples highlight words to show the readers that you can find context clues in the sentences before, in or after of the vocabulary word.
You can then use the task cards in centers, small group our as a daily warm-up so your readers can practice finding context clues. After you have reviewed context clues for a week or more, test your readers knowledge by using the at the QUIZZES end of the packet. There are two quizzes in this packet and they are great to use in parent conferences to show the student's performance.
The Vocabulary Reading Comprehension Passages INCLUDE:
Learning new vocabulary and context clues is one of the hardest skills for my reading classes. I was always looking for something for my students to read that would help them practice this skill. I have written 5 reading comprehension passages that is focused on using new vocabulary and strengthening this skill. This comprehension packet is a page long containing 5 questions each passage. The teacher has the option to use multiple choice or short answer. The short answer option is great for challenging your readers, and higher level thinking. Multiple choice may be best for a student needing modifications, working independently, and is great for easier grading.
I hope that this bundle will help you to build vocabulary and teach using Context Clues for your students!
