Take a look at the first set... Mix & Match Root/Base Words with Affixes w/BONUS Activity: SPEED Mix & Match
Hey guys!! This is the second set of a new series I've created called Mix and Match!! There will be tons of sets for the areas of vocabulary, grammar, and math skills!! My intent for this series is to make it easier for us all to practice and/or assess those skills that get pushed to the side when we have time constraints. I needed something that was engaging, quick, and purposeful to sneak in some daily practice and review without taking up much time. PLUS, my kids LOVE them!!!
Stepping in...Mix and Match!
This set is focused on context clues. This set of 3 separate activities helps students practice finding context clues to understand unknown words. They will use sentences, words inside commas, definitions, and synonyms to prove what the underlined word means in the sentence. There are so many options and levels for these activities that makes the set highly useful all year long!! It's a great activity to get the kids up and moving while you are able to informally assess and monitor how the kids are doing.
These activities can be used as transition activities to move into partner/group work, centers, and/or small groups. There is also a BONUS ACTIVITY included called SPEED Mix and Match! With this set, it's 2 card pairs with a sentence with an underlined word and a meaning card that could be the definition or a synonym. This is called SPEED because it's supposed to be even speedier than the Mix and Match activity!! :) You can also print this game out right now in the PREVIEW as a little glimpse of what you can get and will see in the Mix and Match sets!
My hope is that these sets will let you breath a little and allow your students to have that daily practice that's so hard to fit in.
