Many root words can only take a prefix or a suffix, but the ones I used in this product can take both.This product has five usable pages. One page is a template for writing all the words created from the root words plus prefixes and suffixes. There are four practice pages that have a total of 40 words.
NEW: I added core standards, ESL Insights (guide for teachers of ELLs), and a quiz/practice page with answer key.
My suggestion would be to copy the four pages together and put them in student work folders to be completed during word work time in the reading block. They of course could be used for homework, literacy centers, or for substitutes ( you can't save enough resources for being absent).
