Derivational Relations

Students in this range are usually found in upper elementary, middle school and high school.  They are characterized as: advanced readers and writers; have a firm understanding of common syllable junctures, spelling patterns of stressed and unstressed syllables, and effects of prefixes and suffixes on base words; have mastered high frequency words; read with good fluency and expression; read faster silently than orally; and write responses that often reflect more sophistication and critical thought.  Below are some examples of sorts that children will complete in this spelling stage.
