In Language Arts today we focused on using context clue strategies to learn some new words. For example, students were able to guess the meaning of prevaricate when given the sentence, “Is there ever a good reason to prevaricate rather than tell the truth?” We discussed context clues and classified each one as a Synonym, Compare/contrast, or Cause/Effect. Tonight students will create a make believe word and write some sentences with context clues to help clarify their made-up word. See if you can guess the definition of their made-up word by just reading their sentences.
