Proof from text: I was not able to determine the meaning of this word from the text. Write the page # and word.

Context clues are more commonly found in nonfiction texts than in fiction, though they are found in children's literature, often with the goal of building readers' vocabulary. Words can have multiple meanings, so being able to infer the correct meaning from context is a valuable reading comprehension skill.
