Everything you need to complete a roots, prefixes, suffixes unit!
We always tell our students the purpose of learning these affixes is to figure out vocabulary-in-context. Many times we test students' knowledge of the affixes, but not their APPLICATION of them. In this definitions and assessment bundle each quiz includes a write-in section for definitions, approximately five multiple choice vocabulary words that use the affix, and students choose the best option based on their knowledge of the affix in the word. Practicing this weekly for a semester really helped my students USE their vocabulary comprehension skills!
This bundle includes:
1. Introduction PowerPoint (also sold separately in my store)
2. A list of 86 words, definitions, and if the word is a prefix, root, or suffix
3. PDF of 16 ready-to-print quizzes that include a write-in section for definitions, and a vocabulary-in-context multiple choice section on the bottom
4. 16 Answer Keys
5. PowerPoint version of the PDFs so you may edit quizzes as necessary
This does not include individual lessons for the words, however, you may want to assign making notecards, creating sentences, or finding words that use that root/prefix/suffix for homework or an activity.
Some of the vocabulary words-in-context are easy, and some are more challenging to figure out. Encourage students that they really need to think of variations in how to use the definition of the word and they can figure it out. The majority of my students earn A’s on these quizzes every week, and enjoy trying to figure out the words!
This product is most suitable for high school (I use it in my 9th grade class) but it can be used or modified for 6-8.
