Context clues...Max's Words (2006) As a mentor text for teaching vocabulary and story writing, a book can’t get any better. On the NCBLA 2007 list of outstanding literature, Max’s Words introduces us to Max, a little brother without a collection. Wanting a collection like his brothers, Max begins to collect words. His collection grows and grows until he has enough for stories, and for sharing.
This is a step-by-step powerpoint designed to introduce the 5 types of context clues to students (synonym, antonym, definition, example, inference). Each type of context clue is presented on its own slide, and contains a definition, and an example sentence. It ends with 14 practice questions written in a multiple choice format. $
