A packed resource to introduce, review, and intervene with PREFIX RE. Students will develop foundational knowledge and practice with the prefix and word parts.
***HOW TO Directions for each page!***
Included you will find:
Teacher Poster of Prefix and Definition (Standard Computer Paper Size): I typically print this on colored paper and laminate. This stays displayed near my learning objective while teaching the prefix.
Student Flash Card: 3 per sheet/1 per student. I print these for students and they cut, whole punch and add to their Vocabulary Ring. This works as a great visual for students to track the prefixes we have covered this school year. Sometimes I laminate these ahead of time ensuring that they last longer.
Guided practice Sheet 1: This Guided Practice sheet allows students to activate their background knowledge. Since RE is one of the most commonly used prefixes in the English language, students are able to plug in their active knowledge to build a stronger foundation on the prefix's meaning and it's use. This sheet would be great for whole group instruction, small group instruction, or independent pair work.
Guided Practice Sheet 2: This sheet takes using the prefix to the next level by allowing students to create their own sentences using the words reviewed on the previous guided practice sheet. I like this use this in groups of 2, where students can put their own creativity into the writing. It makes for great conversation about words using the prefix.
Independent Word Sort: Students cut out the words to create words using prefix re. This includes; the prefix, base words, and definitions for newly formed words. For students who like to have extra practice at home, this makes for a great home resource. For families looking to help reinforce skills at home, this is a great resource to throw in a baggie for home use.
Small Group Guided Practice and/or Intervention with Tracking Sheet: This is my favorite part of this resource and where I find the biggest bang for my buck. I like to either print these pages on card stock and/or laminate them. Student rotate to a small group with me with these task cards. Students help me to sort the prefix, base, and definitions of newly formed words. For students who are struggling with this prefix, I copy these pages in different colors (example: blue for 2 pages of RE, red for two pages of base words, and yellow for 2 pages of definitions). This allows for those students to have a second visual and acknowledge the difference between the function of the three different types of word parts.
Small Group Guided Practice and/or Intervention with Tracking Sheet: This is a replica of color sorted word parts but sorted by: prefix, base and then definition on one page. Use this 6 page version for students who simply need a review of the prefix and can do so at a station independently, with a partner, or a small group. When you have moved on to other content, add this station back into your station work rotations for a review. Print these all on the same color, laminate (optional) or print on cardstock.
