Use rap music to keep students engaged with these root words, prefixes, and suffixes worksheets based on our song about Phillis Wheatley, a Black female author. The song, written as a reading passage with prefixes and suffixes, explores Wheatley's challenges during the American Revolution and the communication between her and General Washington during the war. The song uses the exact letter Wheatley wrote to Washington and his corresponding letter to her, so it contains rich, content vocabulary for identifying root words and affixes with the worksheets.
