What Vocabulary Program would be complete without teaching students how to use context clues to find a words meaning? I've created a cute poster that you can use to help your students remember to use context clues.
The poster encourages students to look for words that have the same or opposite meaning of the unfamiliar word and things or ideas related to the word. They can also ask themselves "Is the word a noun, verb, adjective, or adverb?" Then after they have thought of all of the clues surrounding the word they then need to prediction the meaning of the word and ask themselves does the sentence now make sense.
