***BONUS ACTIVITY: SPEED Mix and Match FREE in the PREVIEW!!!***
Check out the 2nd Mix and Matchset here!! Mix & Match Context Clues!! with BONUS Activity...SPEED Mix & Match
Hey guys!! This is the first set of a new series I'm creating called Mix & 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.
Stepping in...Mix & Match!
This first set is focused on root/base words with affixes. Depending on where you teach, you may call them root words or base words, but these are the words that can stand alone. These are NOT based on Greek and Latin roots. This set helps students connect the word with its meaning along with using context clues to find the sentence that needs the word. 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.
This can be used as a transition activity to move into partner/group work or as a solitary activity. There is also a BONUS ACTIVITY included called SPEED Mix & Match! With this set, it's 2 card pairs with the word with affixes matching with the root/base word. This is called SPEED because it's supposed to be even speedier than the Mix & 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 & 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.
