Using context clues to define unfamiliar words is essential to comprehension, and it can be tough to teach students to look beyond the other text for clues. This lesson will teach students how to use visuals, word parts, parts of speech, AND surrounding text to define words.

You can use the PowerPoint show, the anchor chart, and/or the poster to teach four key skills necessary to defining unfamiliar words, while students add to the guided notes. Two styles of notes are included; your students can use the folding interactive or traditional notes.
