Product Description
Use combined knowledge of all letter-sound correspondences, syllabication patterns, and morphology (e.g., roots and affixes) to read accurately unfamiliar multisyllabic words in context and out of context.

Objective: Student will be able to accurately define an unfamiliar word using morphology and correctly apply the multisyllabic word in a sentence.

* The student will first need the background knowledge of common root words and affixes in order to correctly define an unknown word.*

Materials needed: A list of 15 multisyllabic words containing a root word, prefix, or suffix will be used to construct flash cards. Print and cut the flash cards (attached in this document) and laminate the cards. Bright or fun colored dry erase markers will be needed.

Activity: The student will use a dry erase marker (use fun, bright colors) to box the root word, circle the prefix, or underline the suffix that helps the student understand the meaning of the word. The student will need to read the unknown word aloud, find the root word or affix, and then write a sentence on the attached worksheet using the unknown word accurately in a sentence. The student will have a list of 15 new words that they have learned and have examples of sentences.

Assessment: The assessment will include the teacher checking to see if the root words or affixes are correctly marked on the flash card. The sentences will be assessed as whether or not the sentence with the unknown word makes sense in the context.
