Product Description

Making the transition from phonics-"learning to read"-to comprehension-"reading to learn" isn't always an easy step. "WordBuild Elements" provides a bridge between phonics and comprehension by going beyond the standard memorization of vocabulary words to teaching students how to deconstruct new terms. Helping students to learn the 93 most commonly used Greek & Latin roots in our language, Elements focuses on combining those roots with students' knowledge of prefixes and suffixes to unlock unfamiliar words' meanings.

Weekly lessons in the student activity book are based on root families, and students are encouraged to make cross-curricular connections. Elements 3 covers 36 Latin & Greek root families, including roots such as pon, clud, pot, rupt, fess, phon, sum, bio, ordin, mirg, don, cid, viv, lud and more. Lessons are specifically designed to be fun and engaging, and include fill-in-the-blank, "stair steps," and "magic square," type activities. Students will learn how English words are built and discover strategies to determine pieces of meaning embedded in words.

The teacher's guide provides a day-by-day guide to teaching each lesson, as well as assessments and blackline masters. Elements teacher's guides provide an "advance preparation" section that reviews important prefixes and suffixes. Objectives and the materials needed for the lesson are listed at the outset, with a "unit at a glance" chart that quickly illustrates what's being taught on what day. Each day's lesson includes teaching instructions with classroom direction, scripted questions, discussion guidance, and model lessons for teaching the roots and affixes. Included weekly, semester, and year-end tests are provided. Reduced-size student pages with the answers overlaid, word lists, and assessment answers are also included.

The Dynamic Literacy "WordBuild Series" is a five-year program that's comprised of two series, and can be used at any point from grades 3-12. This Elements Level 3 curriculum is the third year of the second (3-year) series, and is designed for students who have a mastery of phonics and are exposed to academic text in various content areas. Lessons take only 15 minutes per day and can be used as a regular course, or for intervention, EEL, and after-school activities. For on-track students, this course is recommended for grades 5-10; for struggling students, grades 7-12.

This Elements Level 2 kit includes:

  • Student Activity Book, 220 pages, softcover.
  • Teacher Edition, 431 pages, softcover.
