Teaching in Room 6: Root Word I have organized this Common Core standards to really implement it in my room. Kids got quite a bit out of it, and their vocabulary really soared!

Teaching in Room 6: Root Word Study

Purchase a checkers board (Wal-Mart) and place velcro on the black squares on the game board. Print, laminate, and cut on the following squares on the above template and place corresponding velcro pieces on the back. Place the words with prefixes and suffixes in random order on the game board. Each time a player moves a checker they must say the prefix or suffix, read the word, and explain what it means. (The template "Common Prefixes/Suffixes" from above can help children as they are playing this game).
