Instructional Ideas
  • Use the activity in a literacy center or as a homework assignment
  • Have kids work in pairs or groups to complete the assignment
  • Include the lesson into your unit about dictionaries and other reference materials
  • Independent practice worksheet would be a good addition to a weekly language arts packet or warm-up activity
  • Create a class list of roots, prefixes, and suffixes for a classroom word wall or reference page in your learners' binders
Classroom Considerations
  • Some of the instruction is scripted, which might be helpful for beginning teachers but tiresome for more experienced teachers
  • Includes worksheets and auxiliary materials for implementation
  • Comes with examples for words that kids might use during the lesson
  • The lesson includes a lot of explanation and instruction guidance; you can use what you need or simply bring the worksheets into your lesson about root words
