To strengthen vocabulary knowledge, students must learn commonly used roots and affixes. This product introduces students to the roots, audi- and dict-. It provides engaging activities to reinforce the meaning of these roots and to apply those meanings to unknown words.
For each root, students focus on four words that share that particular root. These words are introduced in a brief narrative, and students are required to use context clues to determine their meanings. Once meanings are verified, students engage with these words by writing definitions, drawing pictures, completing sentence stems, and listing related words and phrases.
More practice is provided with games. There are two matching games. One matches words to definitions. The other matches words to sentences. In addition, there is a board game in which players attempt to be the first to reach the Root Word Forest by correctly selecting one of four words to complete a sentence in order to move along the path that leads to the forest.
Word Wall cards with illustrations are included to help you and your students review the words, their roots, and definitions throughout the year. Suggestions on how to use the Word Wall cards are also provided.
