I created this product to assist my students with vocabulary acquisition using our basal text; however, any text can be used. I make front-to-back copies for my students. Prior to reading, students are assigned vocabulary words from the text. Students will record each word in the space provided. Then I have students go on a mini-vocabulary hunt for each word. Students will record the page number each word is found on. Next, students will read the sentence in which each word is found in and record the sentence in the space provided. Students will then share their findings with peers and discuss what they think the word means based on the context clues. Finally, students will use the glossary/dictionary to discover the actual meaning of the words. I finish this activity with a student discussion comparing the actual definition with their context clue definition!
This is a great activity to use as a whole class or in small Guided Reading Groups!
