  • @Aarish Reiza There are a number of great books out there that deal with root words. But if you just google "common root words" you should find several lists online.

Teaching prefixes, suffixes and roots

  1. 1. Teaching <br />Prefixes<br />Suffixes<br />And<br />Roots<br />Keith Pruitt<br />Words of Wisdom Educational Consulting<br />www.woweducationalconsulting.com<br />
  2. 2. One way to greatly enlarge the vocabulary of students in very short order is through teaching prefixes, suffixes and root words. <br />Knowledge of these areas will help to greatly expand student vocabulary.<br />Let’s first explore the nature of compound words.<br />
  3. 3. Compound Words<br />When we add two words together, we form compound words. These may be easily taught to students.<br />Patricia Cunningham suggests doing word sort activities by categorizing compounds.<br />Apple + sauce<br />Earth + quake<br />Draw + bridge<br />Brain + storm<br />Basket + ball<br />Pan + cakes<br />Ear + rings<br />Finger + prints<br />
  4. 4. Prefixes<br />Un-, re-, in-, dis- are the most common prefixes and when students have learned their meanings, they can learn more than 1500 words easily.<br />Start instruction with un-<br />Read a selection… <br />Explain that un carries the opposite meaning of the word to which it is added.<br />
  5. 5. Prefixes<br />UN-<br />Which of these are prefixes and which are not?<br />Unemployed<br />Uncle<br />Unstable<br />Unbroken<br />Unicorn <br />Unhealthy<br />Unlucky<br />United<br />
  6. 6. Prefixes<br />Re-<br />Can mean back or again<br />Which are these? And which are not a prefix?<br />Rearrange<br />Refund<br />Reply<br />Review<br />Refrigerator<br />Relocate<br />Reporter<br />Rewrite<br />
  7. 7. Prefixes<br />In- Dis-<br />Opposite or not, but words with in are irregular<br />Do sorting exercises with prefixes, not prefixes including the irregular spellings.<br />Inspire<br />Irrational<br />Immigrant<br />Improve<br />Dislike<br />
  8. 8. Prefixes<br />Less common prefixes include in, mis, non, pre, en, over, under.<br /> misinform<br />Inside<br />Preview<br />Overdone<br />Preteen<br />Nonliving<br />Nonrenewable<br />Underhand<br />Understand<br />
  9. 9. Suffixes<br />Often just called endings the most common are s (plural forms), er(relating to a person or thing that does something), ful, less, able, ible, ist.<br />What do these words mean when the suffix is added?<br />Fighter<br />Folder<br />Helpful<br />Visitor<br />Doubtful<br />Powerless<br />Suitable<br />Gullible<br />Persist<br />
  10. 10. Suffixes<br />Here are words using less meaning without<br />Here are words using ful meaning full or having<br />Do the same exercise with -ment, -ance, -ness, -tion. Write riddles of what word am in with several. I end in –tion. We need to do this in math. What am I?<br />
  11. 11. Prefixes<br />Un-, re-, in-, dis- are the most common prefixes and when students have learned their meanings, they can learn more than 1500 words easily.<br />Start instruction with un-<br />Read a selection… <br />Explain that un carries the opposite meaning of the word to which it is added.<br />
  12. 12. Roots<br />Here are some common roots and their meanings. What words could be taught? Give two examples of each.<br />Dict= say<br />Duct=lead<br />Fac/fec=do, make<br />Ject=throw<br />Loc=place<br />Meter=measure<br />Micro=small<br />Phon=sound<br />Photo=light<br />Port=carry, take<br />Press=press<br />Scrib=write<br />Sens=feel<br />Spec=look<br />Struct=build<br />Tele=far<br />Tract=drag, pull<br />Vis/vid=see<br />Voc=voice, call<br />
  13. 13. If we will spend just a few moments a day working with these words, we can seriously impact the knowledge base of each student.Keith PruittWords of Wisdom Educational Consultingwww.woweducationalconsulting.com<br />
