chapter 1 context clues
Chapter 1 Context Clues
  • After the word or that directly follow the unfamiliar word.
  • Authors often use punctuation clues to help the reader. Punctuation clues might include commas, dashes,or parentheses.
  • Before the word
  • In the previous sentence.
  • In the next sentence
  • By replacing the unfamiliar word with another word to see if it fits or makes sense.
  • By studying the unfamiliar word’s prefix, suffix, or root word and writing the meanings to figure out the meaning of the word.
  • By asking yourself if the word sounds positive or negative.
  • By figuring out the word’s part of speech, such as a noun, verb, adjective, or adverb.
  • The context clue may be a synonym (words with almost the same meaning) or an antonym (words opposite in meaning) for the unfamiliar word.
chapter 2 main idea
Chapter 2 Main Idea
  • A main idea is the author’s controlling point about the topic. It usually includes the topic and the author’s attitude or opinion about the topic, or the author’s approach to the topic.
  • Ask two questions:
    • Who or what is the paragraph about? (topic)
    • What is the author’s controlling point about the topic? (main idea)
  • A topic (the general idea or subject). It can be stated in a sentence or just a few words.
  • A main idea (the controlling point the author is making about the topic). It is often stated in a topic sentence.
  • Supporting details are specific ideas to develop, explain, or support the main idea.
  • A topic sentence is a single sentence that states the author’s main idea.
  • The central idea is the main idea of a passage made up of two or more paragraphs.
  • The thesis statement is a sentence that states a longer passage’s central idea.
chapter 3 supporting detail
Chapter 3 Supporting Detail
  • Supporting Details: reasons, examples, facts, steps, or other kinds of evidence that explain the main idea.
  • Major details: explain and develop the main idea
  • Minor details: help fill out and make clear the major details.
chapter 4 implied main idea
Chapter 4 Implied Main Idea
  • Implied:The word “imply” means to suggest—the idea is not stated clearly.
  • Infer: figure out on your own.
  • Implied Main Idea: Suggested by supporting details and not clearly stated in one sentence. The reader must figure out an implied main idea by considering the supporting details.
chapter 5 relationships
Chapter 5 Relationships
  • In this chapter, you learned how authors use transitions and patterns of organization to make their ideas clear.
  • Transitions show relationships between ideas in sentences
  • Patterns of organization show relationships between supporting details in paragraphs.
  • Two common kinds of relationships that authors use to make their ideas clear.
  • Addition Relationships:
  • presented list or series of reasons, examples, or other details that support an idea. No time order…whatever order the author prefers.
  • Transition words that signal addition relationships include; for one thing, second, etc.
  • Time Relationships
  • A series of events or steps in the order in which they happen, resulting in a time order.
  • Words that signal time relationships include; first, next, then, after, and last
