Grab your detective hats and start the Clue-Searching fun! Research tells us that teaching vocabulary word by word doesnt cut it anymore. In addition, state tests are becoming increasingly difficult for our students. We need to give our students strategies to determine unknown meanings.
Students cannot survive on definitions alone. With the shift to common core, students are going to be expected to use their deductive skills to determine word meanings. Cooking Up Context Clues targets the this skill! There are 42, multiple choice cards using Tier 2 vocabulary words.
