PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product aligns with Common Core State Standards: L.4.4 Use common, grade-appropriate Greek and Latin affixes and roots as clues to the meaning of a word (e.g., telegraph, photograph, autograph).

This is a literacy center that I have used in my classroom to help the students understand how to break words down to their basic parts to gain understanding of the meaning of the word. Students use it as a basic sort and then begin to work with and manipulate the words to see what they have in common (thereby finding the meaning of the affix or root). The writing of definitions and sentences helps to cement the definition in students’ minds. After they have learned the word part they will often come and show me where they have found it other texts that they are reading.

I have this as a part of my regular literacy centers. I introduce the first sort whole group and go over how to complete the activity. After that students are responsible for completing the activity on their own during center time.

Purchase includes: 12 Weekly Sorts with Directions including: Prefixes (un-, re-, pre-, uni-, bi-, pre-, non-, over-, sub-, mis-, de-, dis-, im/in-, tele-, under-) Suffix (-ly, -less, -ful, -er/-or, -tion, -al/-ial, -ness, -ment, -en) Latin Roots (vis-, trans-, geo-, -rupt, -terr, -tract) and Greek Roots (bio-, graph-, phon-, scope-, photo-, meter/metr-)
