ReadWriteThink: Flip-a-Chip

From site: 

Effective vocabulary instruction requires active and positive student participation. In addition, familiarity with high-frequency affixes and roots promotes comprehension of numerous words in which they occur as meaningful chunks. In this online activity, students flip two chips to mix and match four word parts and make four words. Students then insert the four words into a paragraph, using context clues to determine where each word belongs. After each exercise, students can print their work to check whether they placed the four words in the paragraph correctly. For further practice with affixes and roots, students can be encouraged to create their own flip-a-chip games as described in the lesson, “Flip-a-Chip: Examining Affixes and Roots to Build Vocabulary.”
