My kids are pretty good at identifying prefixes and suffixes but they struggle with the application of these skills! I made 24 these task cards to review the meanings of prefixes and suffixes in context. These cards have been really tricky for my kids but are great for higher level thinking! Some questions ask students to apply a new prefix or suffix to a root/base word to create a new definition. Other cards ask students to identify words that uses a prefix or suffix in the same way as the example. They're tricky, but helpful for test prep! (Format pulled from previous SOL questions.)
Cards 1-4: Practice prefixes and suffixes with context clues
Cards 5-16: Practice the meanings of prefixes and suffixes
Cards 17-20: Change the prefix or suffix to create a new definition of the root/base word
Cards 21-24: Practice prefixes and suffixes with context clues
These cards also include QR codes for self checking! My kids were more motivated to think through their responses before checking with QR reader! A recording sheet and answer key is provided.
Not interested in QR codes? No worries! An extra set is included without them!
