The concept behind this product is that every year it seems as if my students score lowest in the area of determining the meaning of unfamiliar words (context clues and word origins).
In order to combat against this, I scavenged through 10 years of released tests and word lists every student should know to compile a list of 260 words.
I then broke the words down by root word, prefix, and suffix to create "RPS Lists"
I then took those words and plugged them into high interest non fiction articles and added context clues into those articles.
Finally, I turned those words into quizzes.
Every Monday my students get a new "RPS List" of 10 words and definitions.
Every Wednesday my students read an article with those words and use context clues to match the words to the definitions.
Every Friday my students take an "RPS Quiz" on the word list of the week.
In this listing there are 26 sets of RPS Lists, Articles, Quizzes, and a definition key.
****RPS Week 1 is available as a sample!***
***I have updated this product to include answer key for the RPS Worksheets, and added graphics to each article as well!***
