Give students a deep understanding of word parts and their meanings in order to strengthen students' ability to read unknown words.
This bundle is EVERYTHING you need to conduct your word study for the year. Students will examine 7-8 words each month to gain a better understanding of prefixes, suffixes and root words. The knowledge they gain will help them to spell, read, and understand unknown words. Each month's unit plan goes beyond traditional spelling lists to help students develop a strong understanding of words and how to break words down into smaller parts.
Each month includes:
★ Directions on how to use the materials in an interactive word study notebook.
★ A list of that month's words broken down into prefixes, suffixes and root words.
★ A personal word wall for students to keep track of their word bank.
★ Several activities for students to learn, practice and apply prefixes, suffixes and root words.
★ Word Wall Letter Cards
★ Word Wall Word Cards for each month
★ Prefix/Suffix cards to post (each week focuses on a new prefix/suffix).
★ Two assessments
★ Answer Key
The prefixes/suffixes covered throughout the year are:
Students begin their word study in September with 11 activities and each month new activities are added. This helps to create a strong foundation for students to build upon. As more activities are added, teachers can treat the activities as a menu and determine which activities meet the needs of their particular students.
Our students LOVE getting out their Word Study Notebooks each day and we have seen a significant difference in both our students writing and reading as a result of their deeper understanding of words and word parts.
