Get Ready for Bloggy Olympics!!!
Join The 3AM Teacher, the Reading Olympians, and over 80 SUPREME education bloggers as we take you through a tour of the Reading Olympians Root Study Program!!
I am so honored to participate in this blog hop! This is my first time blogging about a product I've used in the classroom, so I'm super excited:)
I used the First Grade Roots packet in my classroom, with a small intervention group.
First, we read the story about different prefixes and suffixes. In the story we read about the following prefixes and suffixes: re-, -ed, -less, -pre, -s, -ful, un-, -er, dis-, -est, and pre-. The kids had a great time helping me read the words with prefixes and suffixes. Since I don't have an interactive white board in my classroom, I really wanted to be able to share the book as an electronic version on my iPad, but I couldn't figure out how to open it on my iPad. Either of those options would be a great way to share the story though:)
Then the students matched word cards (with prefixes and suffixes) to their meaning.
Beforehand, I laminated the cards and attached velcro, so students could match the words (with prefixes and suffixes) to their meaning. This was instead of having students cut and glue their own copies. As this was an intervention sessions, we were limited on time.
Here is an up close version.
Finally, students worked independently on their own packets to create words using the prefixes and suffixes we talked about.
