Using Context Clues Atlas Preparatory
5th Grade Colorado Common Core Question: Another word for context is 'background'. Given that information, what do you think a "context clue" is? Directions: turn to an elbow partner and discuss. Disclaimer: Kanye was not involved in making this video.

You should now know the basic definition of a "context clue." Show me TPR. Types of Context Clues Definition Antonym Synonym Inference Definition–the word is defined directly and clearly in the sentence in which it appears. “ The arbitrator, the neutral person chosen to settle the dispute, arrived at her decision.” Example Where is the definition? If I were to underline the words, which part would I underline? Think “ The arbitrator, the neutral person chosen to settle the dispute, arrived at her decision.” Antonym (or contrast)–often signaled by the words whereas, unlike, or as opposed to. “Unlike Jamaal’s room, which was immaculate, Jeffrey’s room was very messy.” Example Think What is the antonym of immaculate? What does 'immaculate' mean? Can you explain your thought process of how you reached that conclution? Synonym (or restatement)–other words are used in the sentence with similar meanings. Example “The slender woman was so thin her clothes were too big on her." Think Can you identify the synonym? “The slender woman was so thin her clothes were too big on her." “Unlike Jamaal’s room, which was immaculate, Jeffrey’s room was very messy.” Opposite of messy = clean.

Replace the word immaculate with 'clean'... does it make sense? Yes. THIS IS THE ANTONYM Inference–word meanings are not directly described, but need to be inferred from the context. “The kids were studious, working late into the night on their homework" Example Think Based on the rest of the text, what do you think the word 'studious' means? How did you get that answer? “The kids were studious, working late into the night" Progress Monitoring Check Point


Cold call - Repeat back.

What are the four types of context clues? Who can say the four types without looking at their paper? Rienforcing the concept before independent practice Independent Practice Directions You will be given a worksheet with sentences that use the 4 types of context clues. Please take a crayon or pencil and underline the definitions, antonyms, synonyms, and inferences that help you define the *underlined* word. Work on it for the rest of our time together. Do the rest for homework. Context clues are "hints" in a
sentence to help us define the meaning of words you don't know.

There are 4 types of context clues.

Context is important because it helps you understand the meaning of words and situations. Key Points: 5th grade vocab words taken from Flocabulary.
Independent learners, check it out.
www.flocabulary.com Let's make our own example sentence together using the 'definition'. Together! Seldom - On only a few occasions; rarely; infrequently; not often. Illuminate - to make brighter (literally and metaphorically). Discuss video TPR: Total Physical Responce

Everything around the word in the sentence. Take notes! Write notes! Do one of each type to start so we can correct before you leave. Formative assessment: if you got 1 of the 4 correct... clap your hands. If you got 2 out of 4 correct... clap your hands. If you got 3 out of 4 correct... clap you hands. If you got 4 out of 4 correct... stand up! :) ` Eyes on me when you're done writing.
