Context Clues by Melissa....This is one of my favorite songs I've written as a teacher! Teachers constantly ask students to use context clues, but this song clearly states the types of context clues used commonly within text (synonyms, antonyms, definitions, and examples). The song has an encouraging chorus prompting students to persevere when struggling with unfamiliar words when reading text. The teacher (of course) is the hero as the student finds success! #grammarsongsbymelissa
