The master suffix list contains 12 weeks of commonly used suffixes. The suffixes can be used as a supplement to any vocabulary (or spelling) program you have. I add one suffix or suffix group to each lesson in my regular vocabulary program.
Once a suffix is introduced, students can be tested on that suffix and associated words for the rest of the year. Repetition is the key to success.
The worksheets are basic and introduce the suffix and sample words briefly. Each practice page includes a graphic organizer that can be cut out and pasted into interactive notebooks.
This is a great tool for test prep to show students how to break words apart and make logical guesses about word definitions based on parts of words.
