Note: This kit continues where the smaller, original kits (1-6) left off with more stories, more fun and some updated ideas on vocabulary instructional practice. I hope you enjoy them as much as my students are! :)
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. I've started using notebooks now (easier for kids to keep track of and they can tote them home, too).
