PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Word nerds of the world unite!

Pro Word Ness is a five part game based unit that helps students build their vocabulary by teaching them classical prefixes, suffixes & root words that - when linked and decoded - unlock the meaning in common complex words. Simply put, Pro Word Ness uses classic card game dynamics - like poker play - to encourage students to build increasingly complex words based on a common three card root word flop.

So think word building 101 - Texas Hold em style - and yes it is as fun as it sounds!

Beyond the fun factor - however - after the game play - students will be charged with brainstorming, writing, editing and refining a creative short story - one that incorporates all the elements of a story plus the new vocabulary they created in Pro Word Ness.

In other words - by design - Pro Word Ness propels the teaching and the learning in this unit, but it does not replace the teaching and the learning in this unit.

And by the end of the unit - students have taken an original piece of writing through the writing process to its final form - all while learning to unlock the meaning of words and building their vocabulary.

Big win - win!

The Pro Word Ness Unit is composed of five distinct lessons - or quests - and cover these themes:

Quest 1 - Pre Quiz & Vocabulary Builder
TSW identify the meaning of the constituent parts of classic prefixes, suffixes and root words using examples from their own everyday vocabulary

Quest 2 - Pro Word Ness Game Play Day
Using the Pro Word Ness card game - TSW identify the meaning of the constituent parts of classic prefixes, suffixes and root words and create real complex words with meaning through card game game play

Quest 3 - The Elements of a Story + The Writing Process (Brainstorm & Rough Draft)
TSW identify the elements of a story and begin creating their very own creative short story by brainstorming and rough drafting a story that includes all of the elements of a story - plus the new vocabulary created during Pro Word Ness

Quest 4 - The Elements of a Story + The Writing Process (Peer to Peer Editing)
TSW identify the elements of a story and create and perfect their very own creative short story by peer to peer editing a story that includes all of the elements of a story - plus the new vocabulary created during Pro Word Ness

Quest 5 - Post Quiz & The Elements of a Story + The Writing Process (Final Draft & Writer Reflections)
TSW identify the elements of a story and finalize their very own creative short story that includes all of the element of a story - plus the new vocabulary created during Pro Word Ness - by completing the writing process - and reflecting on it.
