PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Build A Word Card Game: Prefixes, Root Words, & Suffixes

Are you looking for a game to help support learning Greek and Latin affixes and roots? Build A Word is an original, rummy style card game that reinforces 8 prefixes, 8 roots, and 8 suffixes. Students of morphology will enjoy playing this game.

In Build A Word, 2-4 players attempt to build words and score the most points. Players need to use strategy in order to build longer words, as longer words score more points.

In test play with my children (10 and 14 years old), I noticed that they did not really understand how to build different forms of a word. For example, it wasn't easy for my 10 year old to change instruct to instruction.

In order to enjoy the game, it is really important that students have some background in the roots. A Word Family Card is included for each key word that can be built in this game. (See preview for pictures.) These cards can be used to teach each the word family and then hung for a word wall. Also, a blank vocabulary worksheet is included. Students could either save these in a binder or glue them in a vocabulary notebook.

This file includes:

1. card game
2. word family cards for word wall or instruction.
3. vocabulary worksheet for instruction.


The root words included in this game are:
1. struct
2. form
3. spect
4. do
5. sent
6. ject
7. duct
8. take

The prefixes and suffixes that are included can be used with more than one root word. Wild cards are also included in the game to facilitate word building.

I recommend this game for 5th - 8th grades. 3rd and 4th grade students that have studied the roots could also play the game.
