Complex Text isn't too Complicated for my Kids!

Help me give my students opportunities to practice reading words with suffixes and prefixes so that they can read and comprehend more complex text.

My Students

I teach language arts to 63 second-grade students from diverse backgrounds. All of the students at my school receive a free breakfast and lunch daily. Some of the students also receive food backpacks for the weekends. Many of my students are learning to speak English as their second language.

My students come to school eager to learn every day.

They are very appreciative of kind gestures and support. Sadly, students attending high-poverty schools are often not privy to the support and generosity that their counterparts in wealthier schools receive.

My Project

While reading independently my students need assistance reading words that contain suffixes and prefixes. I want them to be able to read complex text without relying on me to help them decode the words and explaining the meaning of the words they encounter.

The games I have selected will give them the practice they need!

The fun games will give them an understanding of how the words change when a suffix or prefix is added. The games will also help them successfully read multiple syllable words that contain suffixes and prefixes.

Participating in these highly engaging activities will have a tremendous impact on student learning!

Thank you so much for caring about my students and for reading about ways that you can support them!
