This one-of-a-kind manual is intended for the student at the upper language level of an Orton Gillingham based program studying morphology. Enriched by humorous, age-appropriate, natural sounding controlled stories and poems, PS: Prefixes, Suffixes, Roots (Resource of Lists, Phrases, Sentences, Poems and Stories)is ideal for both students and teachers as it includes instructional strategies for the instructor and rich reading material for the pupil. Unlike any other instructional manual of this type, PS provides A, B and C levels of words, phrases, sentences and poems/stories for each affix that are arranged in a cumulative sequence. These multiple levels span a wide range of reading skills, offering diverse reading material. Upper level students finally have material that advances their decoding and spelling skills while engaging them with entertaining reading material.

This book is very useful with plenty of examples to use when teaching students prefixes, suffixes and roots.
This book makes planning an OG morphology lesson quite easy. The students enjoy the stories and I enjoy that authors "leveled" the affixes so I can begin teaching morphology to less advanced decoders. I also liked the sample activities in listed in the back. I can't wait to try some of them!
