Was not appropriate for grade
on February 21, 2013
I teach fifth grade. The prefix choices involved words that were higher level and needed to be explained to most of the students. It wasn't the affix itself that was a problem, but rather the words that were used as examples. They word choices didn't help students to grasp the meaning of the word by knowing the meaning of the affix itself. It was good that the author gave different activities for students to work with the words in context, but they were not thorough enough for students to fully grasp the word meaning and they are not words the students encounter very regularly.
