Product Description
This product is a 17-page step-by-step, interactive and engaging lesson plan! It includes several handouts/overheads, as well as a very specific outline as to what to do to engage all learners – including a humorous introduction, a tactile activity, a demonstration for the visual/kinesthetic learners, relevant student examples, a partner Mad Lib activity with “Jabberwocky”, a homework assignment, etc. etc.! It introduces Lewis Carroll’s classic poem “The Jabberwocky” and focuses on how various suffixes determine the part of speech (does this suffix make it an adjective or a noun?) and also determine the meaning of the word. Specifically, the following suffixes are studied: -ish,-ous,-y,-al,-ness,-ment,-hood,-ship.

Note: Many standardized tests expect students to know word roots and suffixes and to determine meaning from these, so this is perfect if you need to review roots/suffixes with your grade, but you need to take it a step further in an interesting way!
