One way to strengthen vocabulary knowledge is to learn commonly used roots and affixes. This resource introduces students to morphology, also known as the study of word parts such as roots and affixes. The 47 interactive slides in the PowerPoint first define roots, those that can stand alone and those that cannot. Next, come the affixes, prefixes and suffixes. Then students are given the opportunity to create words with certain roots and affixes and to write sentences using their created words. Finally, students will apply their knowledge of word parts to define particular words in sentences from well-loved books such as Stone Fox and Charlotte’s Web.

Additional features:

· Student Goals/CCSS

· Teaching Tips presented as Comments in the slideshow

· Lists of roots and affixes for the PPT activities

· Links to lists of commonly used roots and affixes

· Special bonus: Chart of Root Families with word samples
