These Context Clues Task Cards 3rd, 4th & 5th-grade sets can be used to teach students how to use context clues. Use this find-the-word meaning activity to help your students when building vocabulary. This context clues vocabulary activities packet is ideal for practice in the classroom, at home, tutoring, and online.
These 27 task cards will help your readers better understand what they read! This packet is perfect for test prep. Also, it can be used throughout the year as vocabulary practice.
You can use the first few slides as teacher examples and show your readers where to find context clues in the text. The examples highlight words to show the readers where to find context clues in the sentences: before, in, or after the vocabulary word.
Use the task cards:
- in centers
- small groups
- or as a daily warm-up to practice finding context clues.
After you have reviewed context clues for a week or more, test your reader’s knowledge by using the QUIZ at the end of the packet. As a result, the teacher can easily track and show the student’s performance. This is great to use in parent conferences!
Print the task cards on cardstock and laminate them for best use. The task cards can be printed and placed in a baggie for storage and convenience. You can use them in different centers around the room or in small groups. The readers can underline the context clues with an expo or vis-a-vis marker so that they can visualize where context clues are located.
