TWO AFFIX GAMES
Build vocabulary knowledge and spark student engagement with two fun-filled centers!
Both games include color version and ink saver versions for printing on your favorite color paper.
Student will determine the meaning of the new word formed when a known prefix is added to a known word (e.g., happy/unhappy, tell/retell).
Students will flip a card. They will refer to the help sheet to find the proper affix or meaning that is needed. They will flip a second card. If the affix and meaning match, they keep the cards. If they do not,they flip them both in the face-down position. Student instruction page is included for explicit directions. Prefix and suffix cards are color coded with the help sheet so students will quickly find the meanings.

Spark engagement and build vocabulary skills with this high interest affix center game. Use in pairs or Kagan teams (2-6 players).
Students will acquire fluency with affixes while using their "light saber" to slash the affixes from unfamiliar words. Then the students will record their thinking and discuss the meaning of the word parts with their group while finding the meaning of the "Star Word."
