These phonics practice activities are perfect for small-group work or independent literacy stations for word work. Students apply knowledge of phonics and spelling patterns found in Journeys 3rd Grade, Unit 5.
The emphasis is threefold: identifying the base/root word, stating the meaning of the word with the affix, and then finding words with these affixes in the students' own reading.
(You may have noticed that 2nd and 4th grades are included as an appropriate grade level because each of these activities includes its own word bank so they are stand-alone resources that might also be use with 2nd or 4th graders.)
Included are resources for these prefixes and suffixes (lessons 21-22 are combined, lesson 23, lesson 24, and lesson 25):
• adding pre-, re-, bi-, and un-
• adding suffixes -less, -ness, -able, -ous, -ly, -y, -er
• spelling patterns for adding s/es, er, ed, ing when the base word is doubled
• spelling patterns for adding s/es, er, ed, ing when the base word has a "sneaky e"
• spelling patterns and rules for when a base word requires no change
