**Fully editable** MS Word format
While I love the practicality of the content of the Word Within the Word materials, I found the lists and quizzes overwhelming and unmanageable for my sixth grade students. I decided to break the lists down into more manageable sections, creating sub-lists containing ten words each. I also devised graphic organizers to help students use a hands-on format to develop connections between these word parts and words they are already familiar with. Students choose two familiar words for each word part and write notes, draw pictures, or write a sentence to solidify their connections.
I changed the quiz format and divided it into sections, grouping by fives and providing a word bank and clue words. I wanted to keep the repetition feature to increase proficiency through numerous exposures to the word parts, so each quiz covers the words from that list and the two previous lists, for a total of thirty word parts on each quiz.
This unit aligns with Lists 11-20 of the Word Within the Word vocabulary program created by Michael Clay Thompson and contains a total of 250 word parts and 25 quizzes and answer keys.
