Are you looking for an interesting and interactive presentation for your class about affixes and root words? If so, this is the Smartboard presentation is for you! Filled with colorful slides and graphics, it will keep your students’ attention and they will be entertained as they learn.
This presentation has 5 sections which can be taught together or as separate lessons. The sections are as follows:
Affix and Root Word Identification activity
Affix Sort Activity
**For the Affix Challenge, it is easy to use this as a game that your students will enjoy and will reinforce the material at the same time. To turn this into a game, divide your class into groups. Each group will work together to answer the question on the slide; groups will write their answers on dry erase boards. Upon the teacher's command, the groups will all show their answers. Each group that answers correctly will earn a point. The group with the most points at the end wins the game. I can tell you that this was a huge hit with my class as well as other classes on my grade level after I shared it with other teachers.
An abbreviated version of the presentation is available as a free download so that you can have a better idea if this will work for you.
