IDEAS FOR USING THESE RESOURCES IN YOUR CLASSROOM:
The root word of the week routine takes less than 5 minutes a day and works great as a bellringer or warm-up or to use as part of your morning meeting. Students love the consistency of the routine and really become confident with understanding roots.
The anchor charts work really well to introduce each root. You can give students a half-page version to glue in their journals and post the full-page versions on your reading bulletin board or focus wall.
The BINGO game and sort/word wall are great supplemental activities that make it easy to spiral and focus on root words throughout the entire year. Students love when they can explore root words with these hands-on activities.
HOW I USED THE WORD OF THE WEEK ROUTINE IN MY CLASSROOM:
My students loved using the word of the week routine to become familiar and confident with these root words. When I first introduced the routine we would spend 2-3 weeks doing it whole group, but eventually, my students became independent and the 5-minute routine is something they completed each day when they entered my classroom.
- Monday - Students will read the root of the week, predict what the root means and explain how the example sentences helped them make their prediction.
- Tuesday - Students will reference a dictionary or additional resource to identify the correct definition of the weekly root as well as identify the origin of the word.
- Wednesday - Students create an illustration or symbol that will help them remember what the root means.
- Thursday - Students go on a word hunt to find as many words as they can that contain the root of the week.
- Friday - Students will select 2-3 words from their list and use those words in sentences. This will give them an opportunity to display their understanding of the root.
