Join The 3AM Teacher, the Reading Olympians, and over 80 SUPREME education bloggers as we take you through a tour of the Reading Olympians Root Study Program!!
I was so excited to try this program out. As I study the new common core standards coming our way in California, I can see how learning root words, prefixes and suffixes are important. SInce this was new and out of the normal routine for my firsties, I decided to focus on the prefix re-. We read a printed book provided in the program and practiced making new words with re- infront of it. Here is one of the practice pages we did with the activity.
After we completed the practice page, I decided to integrate it into something we are beginning to learn about and that is recycling! Well, how convenient is reduce, reuse and recycle when learning about the re- prefix! We focused on reuse. We talked about how we can reuse a shoe box. We wrote and illustrated sentences about reusing a showbox. They turned out very cute.
My kids definitely can tell you that the prefix re- means again. I am excited to continue teaching them more prefixes and suffixes!
