TEK 5.2A, 5.2 B & 5.2C

(2) Reading/Vocabulary Development. Students understand new vocabulary and use it when reading and writing. Students are expected to:

(A) determine the meaning of grade-level academic English words derived from Latin, Greek, or other linguistic roots and affixes;

(B) use context (e.g., in-sentence restatement) to determine or clarify the meaning of unfamiliar or multiple meaning words;

(C) produce analogies with known antonyms and synonyms;
For this TEK - I use my Technology to get the class involved!!! Check out this link. It is called Buzz Word!! If gives the students a word, then a sentence. The students must decide what the word means by using the context clues inside the sentence. It is a great warm up and only takes about 5 minutes. The students then learn the origin of the word which ties in the 5.2A TEK of Greek or Latin words.
Have the students record words inside journal. They can fit about 10 words per page.
