Help me give my students vocabulary activity stations and center materials to build their academic vocabulary, knowledge of prefixes/suffixes and roots, and word meaning across subjects.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are a diverse learning community with a wide variety of learning styles and needs. They come from many different socio-economic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. Even with our differences, we form a classroom culture with a passion for learning and mutual respect.
Fourth graders are savvy students and have developed a sense of what they find interesting and how they like to learn best.
Any time that I can engage them with a puzzle or challenge, they always rise to the task. My students have begun to make sense of their world and are making generalizations about ideas and concepts. They naturally love to test out their theories and share their ideas with each other.
There's no doubt about it. Words are powerful. Finding the right words to communicate our ideas, make a request, or explain our wants and needs is critical to navigating through our world. My students need support with developing their word knowledge.
This project will help them conduct word studies and build vocabulary in a fun, engaging, and collaborative way.
Through these center materials and games, they'll have an opportunity to learn vocabulary skills such as parts of speech, synonyms/antonyms, academic language and meaning, word parts such as prefixes/suffixes and Greek and Latin roots, and homonyms.
I plan on using the Vocabulary folder games for literacy centers and since they range from grade 2 to 5 they will meet the needs of all the students in our classroom. The matching games and self-checking centers are perfect for students to use either independently or in small groups. The students will be having fun while developing critical skills they'll need to be effective communicators.
