Flip-a-Chip: Examining Affixes and Roots to Build Vocabulary

(View Complete Item Description)

This interactive lesson allows students the opportunity to fill in the blanks of a story with words created through a virtual flip of a chip. Students will use chips as tools for showing different affixes and roots that can be joined together to create words. The created words are inserted in a paragraph according to context clues. Students can work in pairs to create their own set of chips and corresponding paragraph. Students then exchange their packets to see whether the context clues are stong enough to enable classmates to fill in the blanks correctly.
