Word study is part of every good language arts and reading program. It depends on your grade level, but in sixth grade we break apart words by prefix and suffix and look at how the word changes when you add new prefixes and suffixes. We talk about similar words/antonyms, etc. Word study is just what it implies, you study words.

In Open Court there is a word study section in the teacher's manual. There are overheads that can be displayed. Usually there are several words in the column and sentences below that cover various skills.
