Context Clues Sometimes when you are reading, you come across a word you dont know. How can you figure out what the word means? Look for context clues. Context clues are the words and sentences around the word. They can help you figure out the meaning of the word.
1. Read the words and sentences around the word you dont know. Sometimes the author tells you what the word means. 2. If not, use the words and sentences to predict a meaning for the word. 3. Try that meaning in the sentence. Does it make sense? As you read Like the Good Old Days, use context clues to help you understand the meanings of the vocabulary words. Home
