A worksheet to practice using context clues.
Context clues are hints found within a sentence or paragraph that a reader can use to help understand the meaning of an unfamiliar word. Identifying these clues takes a lot of practice, just like any other skill.
Use this worksheet with your students when they are learning to use context clues to identify the meaning of new words in their reading.
An answer key is included in the download.
