English Language Arts Lesson - Context Clues, Grade 1

  • Activity 1 / A Fox Family Worksheet

    Sometimes the best way to learn new words is simply by reading! Using context clues based upon the other words in a passage, we can successfully infer the meaning of the word in question. This brilliant worksheet does exactly that, by providing your child with an interesting story about a cute little fox family. While reading, your child will learn that the word “kits” actually refer to baby foxes. Just read the text with your child and circle the picture below it to answer the question.

  • Activity 2 / What Does It Mean? Worksheet

    Other words or phrases in sentences can give readers a clue as to what another, more unfamiliar word might mean! Teach your child to use context clues to define new vocabulary by printing and completing this delightful reading worksheet from Kids Academy! Task little learners with reading each sentence and finding the targeted word in pink. Based upon the other words in the sentence, what might that word mean? Mark it the answer by checking the box next to the picture that represents its meaning.

  • Activity 3 / Fish Worksheet

    There's something about the water that kids find irresistible and learning about what lies beneath is just as exciting! With this free PDF worksheet about fish, your young readers will learn about fish and some cool characteristics they have. They'll use larger vocabulary with contextual meaning, and then they'll get to answer the accompanying reading comprehension questions to show what they learned. They'll be given multiple choices to choose from, similar to what they'd find in a classroom, and they'll not even know they're working on reading comprehension and answering skills!

Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.

Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
