The Northern Nevada Writing Project offers dozens of lesson plans and activities to aid in teaching writing. Here is a lesson on prefixes, suffixes, and roots using, among other resources, the lyrics of the song Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield. This lesson plan includes a rap song about prefixes, suffixes, and roots, notes about root words, and add-ons, and a work sheet of commonly used prefixes to get any group of students in the groove. There is also a graphic organizer tied to the song Unwritten. Try this one out on your middle school students.
