Product Description
These activities are ready to copy and go without need for you or a sub teacher to read lengthy directions. All you need is a copy machine, scissors, pencils, and a classroom of second or third graders!

Students will write Morning and afternoon large group “messages” to be used as “get acquainted” and “end of day wrap up” meetings.

The morning message provides a script for sub teachers to introduce activities for the day. Each message should take from 30 to 45 minutes of class time. The morning message introduces the “theme” for the day: Word Building

Students will read independently and complete Reader Response papers. In a fiction book, students will record what they learned about plot, characters, setting, and new words, whether they read one chapter or several. For non-fiction reading, a paper entitled “REAL PLACES REAL THINGS REAL PEOPLE” form is provided for students to record facts.

Students will read about compound words. They will “break down” compound words to recognize root words. They will make an ABC Book of Compound Words and a Compound Word Collection Book to extend practice.

Students will read about prefixes and suffixes. They will generate sentences with root words using the prefixes: “un,” “pre,” “re,” “dis,” “mis,” “in,” and “im.” They will generate sentences with root words using the suffixes: “able,” “ful,” “en,” and “er.” They will construct charts matching prefixes and suffixes to various root words and recognize that certain root words (do, fill,write, …) can use more than one prefix and/or suffix (i.e. “undo,” “redo,” “unfillable,” “refillable,” “pretest,” “retest,” etc)

Students will search for compound words and words with prefixes and suffixes inside a reading comprehension passage.

Also included in the plans is an activities grid that briefly explains each activity, possible variations of the activity, materials needed, and
