PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These 40 ready-to-use worksheets (with answer keys) are designed to help your students use affixes correctly and to understand new words by looking at affixes and word roots. This resource is correlated with Common Core Standards for grades 3-5 (standards included, see preview).

This resource is divided into four sections: Prefixes, Suffixes, Prefixes and Suffixes, and Roots. At the start of both the Prefix and the Suffix sections, there are several worksheets that introduce students to some of the more common affixes. The rest of the sections are devoted to more practice using these affixes with a short multiple choice quiz at the end. The Prefix and Suffix section provides opportunities for students to practice using prefixes and suffixes together. The first two pages in the Roots section focus on just three common roots and their meanings in order to introduce the concept. The following pages provide more opportunities to explore Greek and Latin roots.

These worksheets have some color for use at centers (laminate and use with dry-erase markers) or with a document camera. However, they will print out fine in grayscale for individual use. Each section is color coded with one dominant color.

I love the amount of skills practice students get with these sheets. It works well with the beginning lessons, which include prefixes and suffixes, of the new Journeys Reading program my district is using this year. This helps me reinforce those skills I teach during mini lessons and provides homework. A timesaver!

Product Questions & Answers

On  February 10, 2014,  Buyer asked:
Hi,

I just emailed a question to you but I could not tell if it sent. I am trying to download your preview because i am very interested on this product. I buy from TPT regularly and never have problems opening anything but I can't open your file. What application do I need? help, please!!1
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 10, 2014Rachel Lynette answered:
TpT recently changed the way that previews are displayed, I wonder if that is the issue? I would try a different browser first and if that does not work, contact TpT customer service. Tech on-site tech issues are not something I can fix, unfortunately.

On  September 3, 2013Rachel Lynette answered:
It should print out fine. I'm sorry, but I don't think it is a problem with the file.
On  May 27, 2013Denise Lilly (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Rachel,

I really like the train clip art included on this product. Could you create it as separate item so that it can be used as a bulletin board header? I am thinking one part of the train per page? (8 1/2 by 11) Thanks.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 27, 2013Rachel Lynette answered:
Hi Denise,

I played around with it and I don't think I can get it to work. When I enlarge it, the pixels get all blurry. I originally created it by manipulating some clip art in paint (which took quite awhile since I redid most of the colors). This particular image was just never meant to be big.

Sorry!

On  June 10, 2012,  Elaine W. asked:
Just joined TpT and wanted to clarify: Do the digital downloads include more than the download preview? I'm thinking yes, but don't want to buy and then find out I was wrong. Thanks and can't wait to try.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 10, 2012Rachel Lynette answered:
Hi Elaine,

Yes! The preview is just meant to be a taste so that you can get an idea of the product since you can't flip through it like you might at a teacher resource store. For my products, I often offer a few pages to try and a table of contents telling everything that is included. Many sellers also offer thumbnails of the pages included if you buy the product.

Hope that helps!

Is there any way to type in and change the worksheets for students who may need modifications?

I used to provide both Word and PDF versions of my products so that teachers could edit the Word versions, but I haven't for this one. If you buy the product and write to me at reallyrachel@gmail.com, I will send you the Word version directly.
