Word Work Assessments - Mandy Neal

Word Work Assessments

Teaching prefixes, suffixes and roots can be fun!  Fun?!?!  Yes, they can!!  They used to be the worst part of teaching for me, until I came up with a routine that I was able to stick with and my students looked forward to.

The Word Work Interactive Notebook for Prefixes and Suffixes started it all, you can learn more about that here.  Then, along came the Month by Month Word Study from Prefixes, Suffixes, and Roots.  You can learn about that here.

Now, I want to introduce to you the Word Work Assessments that were created to assess students’ knowledge of word parts and their meaning of the words used in Month by Month Word Study from Prefixes, Suffixes, and Roots and/or The Word Work Interactive Notebook for Prefixes and Suffixes.

Word assessments
Each assessment is centered around the word parts for a specific target word. Word parts are applied to additional words where students will provide definitions, break apart words, use words in sentences, and make new real or nonsense words.

Word Work Assessment
There are a total of 47 word assessments and corresponding answer keys.
