PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

WHAT IS IT?
★ An anchor chart to be printed and hung in your room
-AND-
★ A one-page quick reference to print for students to use all year reading complex texts, reading for comprehension, and analyzing + correcting sentence constructions (grammar)

WHAT'S THE CONTENT?
★ 60 Words Parts & Definitions: 19 Prefixes + Definitions, 23 Roots + Definitions, 18 Suffixes + Definitions
★ Comparison of word parts to navigating on a ship: each part of the ship has a specific purpose, just like word parts
★ Inclusion of most common and trickiest word parts for middle schoolers
★ Engaging, easy to utilize, and fun for students to keep as a quick reference throughout the year

HOW DOES THIS RELATE TO COMMON CORE/ TNREADY?
How do you teach students to make meaning of unknown words in increasingly complex texts, particularly in texts with lots of domain-specific vocabulary? Do your students know how to use word parts to deduce a word’s part of speech and whether it is used grammatically correctly in a sentence?

Students have had direct instruction around word parts for years; your students don’t need more lessons, they need better strategies to use word parts when analyzing a text’s meaning and sentence construction.

Deeply understand the role each word part plays within a word in addition to the definitions of word parts will set students up for success on Common Core/ TNReady-aligned assessments. This quick reference isn’t just a list of definitions; it is tool reminding students how and when to analyze word parts.

HOW DO I USE IT?

Print and give to all students. Require students to reference while reading texts and spotting grammatically errors (i.e. suffix analysis).

Hang it in your room as a constant reference for students.

Make the concept sticky by using the analogy of word parts representing a ship’s core functions that allow it to navigate the world. Students navigate their comprehension by identifying word parts and using them to redirect misunderstanding and clarify relationships within the text.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?
★ PPT Quick Reference
★ PDF formatted as an 8.5 by 11 (Ready to Print)
