Get Ready for Bloggy Olympics!!!
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!! In kindergarten, we have a standard that addresses the prefix and suffix understanding of words and building words. They need to understand how to take apart words to learn the meaning of the words. This Root Study Program does just that, takes apart and puts together the word parts, so my little kiddos can pump it up to read. Here is how the Olympics went in my room. The children were introduced to the concept through a whole class lesson using a provided slideshow-book. Then, we broke up into groups and had a mini-lesson and work session while at my table. During the lesson, the children learned about what a prefix is and how it affects a word. They were told that a prefix and suffix are helpers that change the meaning of the word. We built words and read them using them in a sentence to insure they knew the meaning of the words. They were able to summarize the lesson in a closing that passes the torch onto the other groups. It was amazing and most of all, the children had a fun time learning the lesson, so I know the concept will stick!!
