The day before
beginning The Whipping Boy, I displayed the following anchor
charts in the classroom. This unit covers prefixes, suffixes, and root
words. The two prefix charts were used for the first lesson. I removed
the star-shaped sticky notes before class began; students placed them to
the chart under the prefix that made real words. These two charts will
change with each lesson, and a different set of prefixes, suffixes, or
root words will be displayed.
The character charts
will stay up for the duration of the novel. As students read, we will
add character traits to these charts. Once we have read approximately
half the book, the characters' main problems will be added. At the end
of the novel, the solution to this problem will also be added.
