Word Retrieval

Students will develop a stronger word vocabulary through the use of a multisensory approach to word meaning. The suffix -ly is commonly included with words in all content area texts and other written products, including novels and informational writings. This unit focuses on a multitude of skills that many students have not internalized, even though students are in higher grade levels where expectations are this skill is known.
Brain development and degrees of maturation are as varied and as different as each student. This unit places a great deal of repetition, review, practice using multisensory strategies and techniques. It is important for each student to have time to process the skills. Otherwise, students may be tempted to memorize the material, rather than comprehend.
