Student Materials: Words & Their Parts
Stresses the importance of word parts in determining a word’s
meaning. Coupled with this word learning principle is the vocabulary-building
strategy of adding the distinct meanings of individual word parts
together to determine a larger word’s meaning.
All of the vocabulary words to
learn in this lesson have the same targeted word
parts—in this case, prefixes.
Students learn what prefixes are and an important principle that will
help them learn new words with these prefixes.
Students learn to use their knowledge of prefixes to determine the meaning
of unfamiliar words.
Students sort vocabulary words to place them on the correct branch of the graphic
organizer prefix tree.
