Our Roots and Affixes lesson plan prepares students to define, identify, and use roots, root words, prefixes, and suffixes. Students are challenged to generalize their understanding while composing a ten-word sentence that contains as many roots and affixes as possible. Students are also asked to work collaboratively to create 75 different words using roots and affixes.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define, identify, and use roots, root words, prefixes, and suffixes.
