By James Bucky Carter and Erik A. Evensen. Use high-interest visual narratives to make your word study come alive for students! Fifteen short mini-comics provide the engaging framework for illustrating the meanings of words and word parts in context. The comics become the springboard for stimulating games and activities that allow students to interact with roots, suffixes, and affixes. All of the weekly word study explorations engage students in thinking about language, considering word formation, improving reading fluency, and creating their own stories. This innovative book/DVD resource offers:

  • A highly interactive approach to word study, complete with games, activities, and practice assessments
  • Prompts and optional extension activities for additional opportunities for creative writing and language exploration
  • An interactive software program for projectors, whiteboards, and student computers supporting the lessons and enabling students to create their own comics
  • Easy-to-use, reproducible pdf files of the comics, riddle cards, word sorts, student notebook pages, sample comics scripts, and comics templates.
