The Vocabulary reviews are mini-breakouts that are on the simpler side if students have a good grasp of affixes. They are divided into three units that correspond with the Themed Root Word Study Sets.
Each Wednesday, my students are given a themed list of roots to study. I introduce them using a PowerPoint presentation. Students take notes using either a foldable or a designated notes page. We review throughout the week with Quizlet and Quizlet.Live games, and we use our knowledge of these affixes as we encounter new words in the texts we read independently and in class. They take a short quiz on their list the following Tuesday each week. At the end of each quarter, students take a unit test on the roots and affixes they learned up until that point. The breakouts are used as a review prior to each test. The entire word study unit is covered in three quarters, so that students go into their state tests with a vast vocabulary base.
