PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use these Prefix + Root word + Suffix cards in many ways. It contains thirty sets of Big Words which are really root words with their matching prefixes and suffixes. These are words like: disagreement, unacceptable, indefinitely, maladjusted, unemployment, disrespectful, etc.


Ways to use them:

Use the cards as they are (already matched up) in your word walls.

Sorting Game: Cut out each prefix, root word and suffix and group them into three groups - prefixes only, root words only, and suffixes only. Then students can take turns to pull out a root word from the root word pile and match it correctly to a prefix from the prefix pile and to a suffix from the suffix pile.

Say It, Keep It: Use the cards with the prefix + root word + suffix intact for this game. A caller will keep all of the cards in the deck, pick the first card and read the root word out loud (without showing it to the other players). He can ask the others to name either a prefix or suffix that would match the root word. The first player to name it gets to keep the card. Then the caller picks another card and this process is repeated until all of the cards are used up. The player with the most cards wins the game!

This is part of my Prefix, Suffix and Root word Bundle.

These cards are created in two different sizes. The original set has 6 words per page and the larger set has 4 words per page. The small set will save you ink and paper but many teachers have indicated to me that they preferred to have a larger set to make a bulletin board display. So, that's why I added the larger version. And... I thank all of the teachers who have bought this and left such wonderful feed back. Thank you!

Root words and base words are two different things. The cards are too small and irritating to cut out.
On  February 14, 2014Nyla's Crafty Teaching answered:
Thank you for your feedback. The preview picture shows you exactly what you are getting in this set. I am not convinced that you saw this product in it's entirety. There is a larger set that is included, just scroll down to the end of the document to see those pages. I don't want any of my customers to feel like they have been given a false advertisement so yes, there is a difference between base words and root words, I just wanted to use the term that is used more frequently among teachers (in my humble opinion). I apologise, Ms. Lambert, for the inconvenience this has caused you. - Nyla.

Hi tmwalker, I think that you are referring to my Prefix Cards. Anyway, thanks for letting me know. Your updated file is ready! Just click on the 'My Purchases' tab to re-download it.

You're the best! I just redownloaded. I'm going to laminate them now. Thanks. Keep up the great work.

On  November 29, 2012East Tennessee Bookworm (TpT Seller) asked:
Nyla, sorry this is the set I purchased Monday. (I was checking out other items in your store!) Where do I find the large set? I want to use them in a literacy center.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 29, 2012Nyla's Crafty Teaching answered:
I will re-upload the file right now. It is possible that the site has reverted to the older version... The updated version has both the small set and the large set. I will also send out notifications to all who have purchased it via TpT so that the next time you see this item in your 'My Purchases' tab or if you see it at my store, it will notify you of the revised version. Thanks for following up on this.
On  November 29, 2012East Tennessee Bookworm (TpT Seller) asked:
Oops. Sorry Nyla. I had been checking out your other items and asked about the wrong set. This is the one I bought Monday. I was looking for the large set to use in my literacy center. Mine has the six per page.
