Every Monday, students will receive their vocabulary list for the week.
During class, they are to glue their list into their LAIN - Language Arts Interactive Notebook - the spiral notebook that they should bring to class every day.
A Few Thoughts on the Benefits of Learning
Prefixes, Suffixes, and Root Words:
"Learning to recognize common roots and affixes (prefixes and suffixes) will help you build your vocabulary and improve your ability to make educated guesses about unknown words you encounter in reading and test-taking situations."
"Many studies show the importance of building children’s vocabulary. One study has shown that a set of 20 prefixes and 14 roots, and knowing how to use them, will unlock the meaning of over 100,000 words. A similar study showed that a set of 29 prefixes and 25 roots will give the meaning to over 125,000 words."
