Helps with story grammar: This is a must for any struggling reader.
Improves vocabulary. When I see a word that is unknown to me, I will try to identify its part or speech by looking at the suffix. Then I will look at the root and make an informed prediction. This takes careful scaffolding and explicit instruction for young readers to learn how to do effectively.
Do you have a favorite book for teaching parts of speech? I’d love to hear about it! Thank you so much for stopping by today. As a special thank you, I’m giving away TWO of my October Bundles. It’s a collection of 7 low-prep literacy resources.
This is my first monthly bundle I’ve created and I’m super excited about. I’ll be adding November soon. If you’d like to win it, enter the Rafflecopter below. I’ll announce a winner on Thursday morning 10/30/14.
