Teacher's Guide

Guided Practice

Building Vocabulary helps students unlock the meaning of over 60% of the words they encounter in the classroom and beyond with a systematic approach to teaching vocabulary using Greek and Latin prefixes, bases, and suffixes. Students are introduced to one new root per lesson with daily activities to ensure that they learn the root and the many English words it generates.


The Assessment section of the Teacher's Guide contains a diagnostic pre-test and item analysis for gauging students' root knowledge at the beginning of the school year, unit quizzes to assess students' learning after each unit of study, and a post-test for assessing students' learning over the course of the school year.


Digital Resources

Each level in this series offers additional teaching and practice ideas in a digital format, such as Bonus Pages (activities for each lesson to differentiate instruction), copies of the Assessments, Reproducibles (such as activity templates and word cards), and a comprehensive Word Families and Word Roots List. Also included are videos of lessons modeled in real classrooms at different grade levels. Learn from a professional development in-service facilitated by the authors, four renowned experts in the field of vocabulary instruction.
