I am in need of a picture book or text from a chapter book for my 5th graders to teach them how to use context clues to figure out unknown words. Any titles would be appreciated.

I think books by William Steig would come in handy. He uses a lot of words that students are unfamiliar with. I'm thinking of "Boris and Amos" right now and "Sylvester & The Magic Pebble"

Books by the actor John Lithgow generally have rich vocabulary.

The novel, The Good Dog, is a great way to teach context. The novel is written from the dog's point of view so everyday "human" objects are given new names by the dogs. It makes the students use context to figure out what the "things" are....
