ROOT WORDS, PREFIXES AND SUFFIXES
Syllable Success is a fast-paced, competitive, interactive way of word-building which is effective and fun. It is made up of 18 Sets of Syllable Boards which the teacher uses to tap out words for students to read. Sets are available individually or as a bundle.
SYLLABLE SUCCESS extends pupils’ vocabulary through teaching prefixes, root words and suffixes and through the introduction and study of new words.
SYLLABLE SUCCESS improves pupils’ spelling by highlighting common patterns in words and by providing a general framework for word building.
SYLLABLE SUCCESS helps pupils to become truly independent readers by providing them with strategies for tackling the reading of longer words.
Each Syllable Board is made up of a root word and a wide selection of prefixes and suffixes which can be added to the root word to make known English words. To help the teacher with words to be tapped out, a Table of Words accompanies each Syllable Board. All words in this table can be made from that particular Syllable Board.
SYLLABLE SUCCESS can be used with a whole class or with a reading intervention group.
A short demonstration video clip shows the teacher how to use Syllable Success in the classroom.
Each Set contains:
Detailed written instructions
A training video clip (1½ minutes long)
Two or three Syllable Boards and linked Tables of Words
A ‘Complete the Sentence’ exercise
A Revision sheet (word lists, meanings of root words)
Summary of Meanings of Prefixes
Summary of Suffixes and Parts of Speech
