Vocabulary and Context - Silly Words!

Vocabulary and Context - Silly Words!
Product Description
Unknown words are stumbling blocks for students taking tests. Using context clues to figure out meaning is a valuable skill that has the added benefit of increasing a student's vocabulary. This exercise uses real but silly sounding words that most junior high students will not know. Each passage has context clues that help a student understand the meaning. Students can become Sherlock Holmes as they search for clues to words such as googolplex, gobsmacked, and lollygagging. This is an excellent preparation exercise for state-mandated accountability tests including STAAR, STaR, FCAT, and others.
