Students increase their vocabulary by building upon words they already know. An understanding of prefixes and suffixes increases a student’s comprehension more quickly than learning individual words in isolation. Each book in this series is organized around groups of prefixes or suffixes that deal with common themes.

Let’s Move On - Book 1 focuses on nouns made with suffixes that indicate a function, role, or relationship. The nouns can be people or objects that perform a particular function.

In Unit 1, a liar is a person who lies; a blender is an object that blends; a sailor is a person who sails.
In Unit 2, an Alaskan is a person from Alaska; a historian is a person who studies history; a Puerto Rican is a person from Puerto Rico.
In Unit 3, a colorant is a substance that colors; a president is a person who presides.
In Unit 4, a pianist is a person who plays the piano.
In Unit 5, an evacuee is a person who has been evacuated.

The Lesson Plan For Each Unit
1. A basic presentation of the eight parts of speech and their functions in English sentences.
2. The suffixes/prefixes are introduced.
3. The first page of the lesson is filled out together as a class.
4. A matching activity provides further introduction to the suffixes and prefixes.
5. A list of common words that contain the suffix/prefix is discussed as a class.
6. Sentence Practice A. In the cloze activity students choose words from the Word Bank, alter them and complete the sentences.
7. Sentence Practice B gives students a structured opportunity to change an underlined word to a new word with the suffix/prefix and make an altered sentence e.g., Sam bakes pies and cakes. / Sam is a baker. The words to be changed are underlined in Part B of each practice.
8. Sentence Practice C is the same as B but the students are asked to determine on their own which words to change. All of the words to be changed are included in the list found on the second page of the lesson, so students will always be able to refer to the list to see which words in the practice sentences can be combined with the suffix/prefix.
9. Unit Review - Sentence Practice Quiz: Students are presented with sentences from the previous sentence exercises and they are required to change a word to a new word with the suffix/prefix and make an altered sentence.
10. Unit Review - Four In A Row: Students attempt to place four consecutive markers in any direction on the board by giving correct sentences using the words given with a Unit suffix or prefix.
11. Unit Review - Dominos: Root word and suffix/prefix pieces are paired to make a word. Students can begin with 5 dominos and take turns constructing some sort of shape (circle, rectangle, house, car) by forming correctly spelled words
12. Unit Review - A Board Game: Players move around the board by making new words that contain a suffix/prefix joined to the word on the card that has been drawn. Depending on the degree of difficulty desired, players can be asked to spell the new word. They can also be asked to use the word in a sentence.
