My students enjoyed the activity. Just a word of caution, you cannot really do this is an independent activity because if they make errors, it is not self-correcting. I did it with my TItle I reading students. We did not print it out but cancelled the printing and just moved to the next paragraph. It does not tell the student if their word choice is wrong or right. So, if you are not printing it out to correct them, have students ask for it to be checked before they move on.

Thank you so much for sharing this awesome lesson! I'm a huge advocate of teaching word-parts as a way to increase understanding and expanding vocabulary. I was looking for a different approach to my lesson, which I've used for more than ten years! Thank you again.
