NOTE: This kit contains the stories from the smaller sets I've been selling (1-6). After using them for awhile, I made a few changes and am now posting them as one, larger kit. One major change is that my students are inputting their study of these roots into notebooks so that they can continue their study of them. If you purchased all of my smaller sets, I would suggest going for Large Kit 2 for new dramas.
This 12-week word study kit focuses on some of the most common roots students regularly see on tests like NWEA's MAP test. Each kit includes:
*Pre-/post-tests to measure student progress
*12 plays that incorporate these common roots so that students can see the words in context while building an understanding of what the roots might mean
*Teacher Supports including an article on creating word-conscious classrooms, background information on roots & best practices in vocabulary instruction, a page with photographs of our notebook entries so you can see the kit in action, plus clear directions on how to use the kit.
*For those who are fans of my earlier, smaller sets, I've included the anchor chart page and the printable T-chart for students to log their findings.
