1. Topic-
2. Content-
prefixes and root words
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
1.To decode words with the prefixes non-, in- and un-
4. Objectives-
1.Given 15 words with the prefixes non-, in- and un-
the students will decode the words with 90% success
5. Materials and Aids-
Interactive Board, index cards, writing utensils
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1.Students will be presented with the word unusual on the interactive board
2.Students will be reminded that looking for familiar word parts and breaking them into manageable parts will assist them in reading (decoding) unknown words.
3. Reinforce the word prefix as something that comes before a word and that knowing the prefix can help them decode the word

B. Development-

1.Using the word Unusual ask the students if they recognize a prefix in unusual(someone probably will but if they do not point out UN)
2.Explain that a prefix usually forms its own sound or syllable then have ask them to pronounce the root word usual.
3.Remind students that prefixes do not change the pronunciation of a word but they do change the meaning.
4.Ask them how the prefix in unusual changes the meaning of the word
5. Write the word invisible on the interactive board covering the prefix in- and have the students read the word then show the prefix only and have them read it, then have them read the whole word.

C. Practice-

1.Write inconsistent, nonsense, unlikely, unless, nonprofit, unfortunate, inefficient, nontoxic, unhappy
uninformed, invisible, unknown, informal on the board and ask students to read each word out loud with assistance from teacher as needed.

D. Independent Practice-

Have student work in pairs to make prefix and root cards using the words then have them practice matching up the prefixes with the roots have them blend the word parts to say the longer words

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

Students weaker in phonetic skills will work with the teacher and assistant in two small groups and get guidance with pronunciation as needed until skill is firm.

F. Checking for understanding-

At the end of the lesson teacher will non, profit, un and less cards and have the students explain how we use suffixes then read the suffixes and the roots and blend them to form new words.

G. Closure-

Reinforce the idea that being able to master this skill will assist in both reading fluency and comprehension when reading
7. Evaluation-
Evaluating will include close monitoring of these activities and the way each student performs on the tasks
