This particular resource has been in my mind for over six months! I wanted it to be perfect and kept going back and forth on the best way to present it to you. After many, many months of deliberating in my own mind I decided to make one complete product. From experience, students that interact with these words on a daily basis will be more likely to retain what they learn and extend their learning to what they read and write. With that said, this resource is HUGE, but each month students will continue to work with words and word parts previously learned. All activities were designed to take approximately 15-20 minutes, that's it! It's doable and it works!
Within the teacher directions, you will find multiple ways for using the resources. Don't be overwhelmed with the hundreds of copies that you would have to make, because it isn't necessary. There are options.
What is included within the Month by Month Word Study from Prefixes, Suffixes, and Roots:
-There are a total of 50 target words that students will interact with throughout the year. Each target word centers around a root and contains a prefix, suffix, or both. Students will refer back to target words every week and build connections with new words they encounter.
-Each target word comes with a teacher planning page and contains the following:
*Prefix/root/suffix and its meaning
*Teacher description of word
*Spelling changes are noted
*I can statements
*Words within the target word
-The study and activities for each target word will follow the acronym for WORDS. Each activity contains a printable and step-by-step directions.
