Story Skill: Context Clues
Writers use words that will be new to their readers. They often include other words or phrases to help with the understanding of the new word. These words or phrases are called context clues. They are built into the sentences around the difficult word and can be used to help you determine what an unknown word means.
Writers often describe event or experiences in the order in which they happen in time. When writer's talk about things that happen, they usually don't skip around. They tell the events in the order they happened. Readers should look for signal words to help them identify the order of events. These words include: before, during, after, yesterday, immediately, suddenly, in ten years, this month, next month, last year, decade, century, an hour ago, at 9:00, etc.
