MIDDLE SCHOOL

PRACTICE WITH CONTEXT CLUES!

COMMON CORE STANDARDS:

R.L. 6.4, 7.4, 8.4

slide2

The words selected for this power point are those for 6th -8th levels (as indicated on the previous slide with Common Core Standards). There are 21 word study/context clue slides for use for an introduction to the study of context clues, one for each of the 7 types of context clues for each grade level in order from 6th grade level words to 7th then to 8th.

The answers/context clues slide is at the end for all 21 slides. You may print the slide so that when you go over the answers and discuss, it will be handy.

I have 3 other context clues power points one for each grade level containing 50 items each. I also have a set of worksheets as another product. Thank you for selecting this free power point.

—Mama Flanders

context clue 1
CONTEXT CLUE #1

Sometimes you can take the words apart. Maybe there’s a prefix, suffix, or root (part of the word) that you recognize.

Example: Marion may not show up for basketball practice. She can be undependable.

Of course, you recognize the word “depend” and the prefix “un” which means not, and the suffix “able” which means able to.

Therefore the word ”dependable” means “not able to depend on.”

context clue 2
CONTEXT CLUE #2

Sometimes an author will use a synonym close by the word. You recognize that because the author will have “a” or “or” or commas surrounding the synonym.

Example: Frank did his chores. He wanted nothing to jeopardize, hinder, his meeting his friends tonight.

The word “jeopardize” means “to hinder.”

context clue 3
CONTEXT CLUE #3

Authors use antonyms sometimes. The author will have “not,” “rather,” “or,” “nor,” “yet,” or other words distinguishing the difference between two words.

Example: You are to paint the exterior, not the interior, of the house.

(In other words “exterior” is the opposite of “interior”, so it must mean “outside”.)

context clue 4
CONTEXT CLUE #4

They also use contrast which is similar to antonyms but there might be several sentences of contrast. Clue words introducing contrasts include “instead,” “but,” “on the other hand,” “however,” “though,” and others.

Example: The team became deadlocked, but with more hours of discussion they came up with a plan.

(The word “deadlocked” must mean “came to a standstill.”

context clue 5
CONTEXT CLUE #5

Authors use cause and effect too. Clue words include “because,” “so,” “since,” therefore,” “then,” or “as a result of.”

Example: Because she was so modest, she went unnoticed at the party.

The word “modest” must have something to do with being unnoticed.

context clue 6
CONTEXT CLUE #6

The use of sequence helps to identify the word meaning of an unfamiliar word.

Example: In Great Britain we call that place a quod, a prison, or a jail cell.

The word “quod” must be another word for “prison.”

context clue 7
CONTEXT CLUE #7

The mood and tone of the character helps to suggest the meaning of a word.

Example: The soldier had committed a crime, so he was discharged from the navy.

The word “discharged” must have a negative meaning (connotation) since “committing a crime” has a negative mood/tone.
