In this fun, interactive slide show, students will learn about the magic of word parts through Harry Potter spells.
Students will first learn the definitions for "root," "prefix," and "suffix," and then see the three word parts in action by analyzing incantations and charms made famous by J.K. Rowling's lovable wizards.
By the end of the lesson, students will be able to break down and create words through roots, prefixes, and suffixes.
UPDATE: This product now includes printable PDF lists of Latin and Greek roots, prefixes, and suffixes that can be used by students to create their own spells. The price has also been reduced from $4.00 to $3.50.
(The slide show is a PDF file, but I can send a PowerPoint or Keynote version if preferred.)
