Do you want a GREAT resource for teaching and practicing Root Words and Suffixes? These Growing Word mats are free and ready to laminate or put in page protectors to use with wipe-off markers. Students can learn about Inflectional Suffixes with one mat (Plural -s/-es, Possessive 's/s', Grammar -s/-es, -ed, -ing, -er, -est). Then they can practice Derivational Suffixes with the other mat. (There are 26 derivational suffixes included.)
If you find this to be a useful resource, you will be interested in four packets I have posted in my store. They are: Common Prefixes, Inflectional Suffixes, Derivational Suffixes, and Greek and Latin Root Words. Check them out at teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Sheilas-Leaps-in-Learning! Thanks!
