If you discover your students need practice going over definitions and rules related to context clues, check out these two FREE foldable graphic organizers. Here again, the organizers may be used as a stand alone activity independent from the book. In Chapter 21, you will find an organizer going over definitions, restatement, example, and series context clues.
