Overview

Patricia M. Cunningham - Dorothy P. Hall

Making Words Fourth Grade: 50 Hands-On Lessons for Teaching Prefixes, Suffixes, and Roots, 1/e

 

Based on the best-selling book Phonics They Use: Words for Reading and Writing, this new grade level series offers a fresh pairing of lessons and activities for kindergarten through fifth grade. In Making Words Fourth Grade, Pat and Dottie introduce teachers to 50 Making Words lessons that cover key literacy skills included in most fourth-grade curricula. The activities progress through a systematic process that includes ample practice manipulating letters to make words, sorting words, and using prefixes, suffixes, and roots to explore patterns in related or rhyming words–skills all fourth-grade readers need. Each lesson includes 15-20 words including a secret word that can be made with all the letters. After students gain experience working with prefixes, suffixes and roots, all lessons include a transfer step to help them apply what they learn to the spelling of new words.

 

“I love the fact that [this book] builds on root words, prefixes, and suffixes. If students can learn this, they will be better spellers and better readers  … this word work will help them decipher vocabulary words too!”  –Cheryl Dick, Nixa School District, Nixa, Missouri

 

 “I enjoy teaching Making Words lessons almost as much as my children love participating in them!”  –Amy Martindale Kelly, Grantham School, Goldsboro, North Carolina
