Lexicon Textercise is a great companion to a Literacty Module. It is also designegd to provide starter activities and homework tasks. This is an invaluable reference book and easy spell check for keywords. This TES Resource is an A4 editable and printable version of Lexicon Textercise. The book, shown right, was created so that students could have an individual copy and write in it. The book is available through the website www.lexicologyforreading.co.uk at considerably less cost (£3.50 / book for orders over ten) however this TES Resources version comes with the licence to copy.

Literacy / Lexicology: Bingo

Literacy / Lexicology: Bingo

This resource is based on the 48 (statutory and non-statutory) affixes in the KS1 and KS2 National Curriculum. I created it for a year seven ‘Catch Up Class’ and included several further affixes, all meaning ‘not’. There are eight bingo cards in each set. I do not call out the affixes, I elicit the name of the affix through a series of concept questions. This is a great resource to improve: reading, spelling, ambitious vocabulary; use of: parts of speech, prefixes and suffixes. Bingo as a ten minute plenary helps to revisit the set of affixes covered in the Literacy / Lexicology lesson. For more resources visit my website www.lexicologyforreading.co.uk
