Product Description
As a elementary school reading specialist, I work with students at various ability levels on a daily basis who are in need of word attack skills. This file was created out of a desire to help my students to better understand word parts, meanings, and structure in order to be confident successful readers.

Dividing words into syllables and identifying word parts (roots - prefixes - suffixes) will help students to construct meaning and make better connections as readers. My early level intervention students make adequate progress when learning how to divide words into parts using syllables. My upper level students usually struggle with affixes, which means they need a more targeted and systematic way of exploring word parts and meanings. Through explicit modeling and guided practice students will accomplish the goal of reading words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs, and stories more fluently.

Decomposing (syllables) and constructing words (using affixes) will help students to acquire solid strategies. In essence, they will be able to make better connections overall as readers. Using syllable and affix practice will help to give students the confidence they need to read, when they encounter new or challenging words in texts.

This file could be used for students (2nd - 5th). Intervention students in middle school would benefit from this activity. It can also be used as an assessment to gage students' prior knowledge.
