Are you looking for a way for students to gain a deeper understanding of Affixes and deepen their word knowledge?
Students will have a blast a"FIX"in' broken hearts by pairing roots/prefixes, and roots/suffixes with this activity.

Students will be creating and applying their knowledge of affixes. This activity is versitile to be used in many ways- independently, collaboaratively, centers, or a whole class "scoot".
