Product Description
This free sample contains three of the note-taking guides and quizzes for the Words Their Way Note-Taking Guides & Quizzes - Derivational Relations set which is described below.

Do you want your students to get more out of the Words Their Way program? I certainly did! After using Words Their Way for a few years, I just didn't feel like my students were retaining and applying what I was teaching using the program materials. I felt this was partly due to the fact that there are no note-taking materials or worksheets on which students can record the important information you discuss with them when going over each sort.

I was giving my students traditional spelling tests on Fridays, but I felt I should be testing their learning on so much more, like the meanings of prefixes, suffixes, root words, parts of speech, spelling rules and patterns, etc. Isn't that more important than just learning how to spell twenty words on a list? However, if I was going to test them on all of those things, my students would absolutely need more to study from than a word sort! Which is why I created this product!

This enormous bundle has a note-taking guide and quiz for each of the 60 sorts in the Derivational Relations book. This product is not meant to be a substitution for the Words Their Way materials. It is a supplement to them. You will want to use the word sorts that come in the manuals, as well as the suggestions for leading your students in the initial sort. During that lesson, you can guide your students in filling out the note-taking sheet I have created which highlights the important teaching points of each sort. Students then have a study guide to use along with their sort to prepare for the quiz.

On each quiz, you have the flexibility of choosing which ten words you want to test them on for spelling. In addition, students will be asked other questions involving the important teaching points such as meanings of prefixes or root words, the parts of speech of the base words and how that changes when a suffix is added, and so much more! Also, each quiz has the students apply their learning to new words that are not found within the word sort.
