Product Description
Do you need your students to understand how to use prefixes and suffixes to find the meaning of unknown words? Testing is coming up and you will find this on state assessments as well as standardized testing! Prepare your students with these worksheets and a fun game along with it. Use this as a guide during your lesson with 2 worksheets, one focusing on prefixes and one focusing on suffixes. Then you get a game that is played with partners when you are done teaching.

These worksheets are aligned to common core 4th grade RL.4 - finding the meaning of unknown words.

The worksheets have boxes that students fill out helping them get used to the process of breaking down the word to find the root word and affixes of the word. It also tells the students what the meaning of the affixes are so they can look up the prefix/suffix definition.

The game is played by the students thinking up words that use that certain suffix or prefix then they switch their papers and have their partners try to figure out the definitions of the words using the root word and affixes. They score each others papers and the highest score wins, if you want to be competitive!
Enjoy, and happy teaching!
