This is a suffix file folder game. Students create the longest trains possible out of all the root words, and suffixes given. Students must complete the train with a caboose, a root word of their own that goes with the suffix given.

Cut out the train cars and caboose. You may choose to cut out the train engines, or leave them grouped.
Students will add each train car to a train engine. Each train car has a root word written on it. Each root word can be added to a suffix (or multiple suffixes) to create a new word.
At the end of each train, the students add a caboose, and write their own word with a dry erase marker. Once the train is completed the students will write each word, and look up the definition in the dictionary.
