To add more teacher content to our site, the SeedPD Blog is sharing one teacher-created SMART Exchange file every Friday. All files shared will be Common Core relevant, and we’ll be sure to share with you the standard(s) being addressed.
This entry is a file entitled “Context Clues for Unfamiliar Vocabulary”. In this file, students will be introduced to a number of strategies for determining word meaning using context clues. Using examples, restatement, summary, contrast, items in a series, and cause and effect strategies, students will learn how to use the sentences containing new and difficult words to determine meaning. The file provides examples of each type of strategy used, and uses the hide-and-reveal SMART Notebook 11 technique to share information with students. There is also an interactive activity at the end of the lesson file where students can practice spelling and defining their new words!
