The Northern Nevada Writing Project offers dozens of lesson plans and activities to help teach writing. This is a lesson on prefixes, suffixes, and roots using, among other resources, the lyrics of the song, Unwritten, by Natasha Bedingfield. The extremely detailed 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. There is also a graphic organizer tied to the song, Unwritten.This is a great lesson for middle school students.
