Freebie! Diamonds or Coal: A Context Clues Lesson
Ann Fausnight came up with this great lesson to help students find context clues to understand the meanings of words they don't know. A diamond is a part of sentence that helps define your vocabulary word, and coal is a part of the sentence you have to work at in order to help understand your vocabulary word.
This is a great lesson for reading elementary students! Teaching middle school, I can attest to the fact that kids need to know how to use context clues!
Feel free to follow the link and download the lesson - it is a freebie after all! Just have your colleagues download their own copy :)!
