Using CONTEXT CLUES to Determine Word Meaning

Using CONTEXT CLUES to Determine Word Meaning

Understanding unknown words within text is a skill all students need to develop. This resource helps them learn to use context clues to determine the meaning of a word within a paragraph. This file includes a literacy center activity and a worksheet/assessment. The literacy center is a sorting activity in which students read paragraphs that contain a target word. They use the context to help them understand what the word means and then match it up with a synonym. For example, one paragraph is about a girl singing in front of an audience. The target word in the paragraph is petrified. Students use clues within the text such as the girl's shaking hands and the large crowd to figure out that petrified means scared. There is another paragraph containing the word startled. Students would also match this one up with the word scared. This activity includes 24 paragraph cards and 12 synonym cards, recording sheets, and answer key. The worksheet/assessment has six short paragraphs with a target word in each. Students use context to understand the word and then choose the best meaning from four different choices. Includes answer key.

Put on some fun Halloween music and send the kids on a multiplication hunt. They will need to find each item on their list, solve the multiplication problem, and record the answer on their paper. This can be a timed or untimed activity depending on the ability of your students and how much time you have. When finished, you can give a little treat to the student who got the most answers correct. This is a great way to keep an academic focus on Halloween!

Identifying the Main Idea and Supporting Details

Identifying the Main Idea and Supporting Details

Your students will get plenty of practice identifying main idea and supporting details with this set of no-prep activities! There are 3 different types of worksheets included: SET A: Each page features a short informational passage. Students will read the text and then answer two text-based questions (one true/false and one short response). At the bottom of the page are four sentences to cut out. Students will glue these onto the graphic organizer to show which is the main idea and which are the supporting details. In some of the passages, the main idea is implied rather than explicitly stated. There are plenty of details in the text to help readers determine the main point.The answers to the other questions are found directly in the text. I like to have my students highlight where they found the answers (as pictured on the cover). This shows me that they referred back to the text to find the information. SET B The second set of worksheets feature three different main idea statements. Students cut out the details at the bottom and glue them under the correct main idea. The three main ideas deal with the similar topics, so students will have to read each detail carefully to determine which main idea it supports. SET C These worksheets help students discern between supporting details and non-pertinent information. They will read a short passage and underline or highlight the sentence that does not support the main idea. Each page contains three passages. Includes 11 student worksheets (5 for set A, 3 for set B, 3 for set C) plus answer keys. These work well as homework, in literacy centers, or even for assessment.
