* UPDATE: This product is now available along with other great resources for morphology instruction in The Ultimate Morphology Bundle: Prefixes, Suffixes, Latin Roots, and More

***************************************************************************

** Please view the preview file for a thorough visual overview of this product. **

This product is intended to be used by teachers of Kindergarten through 6th grade to support instruction in morphemic awareness. The materials feature common affixes (prefixes and suffixes) as well as their corresponding definitions, and all affixes are color-coded by approximate grade level. The resource includes an initial index for teacher reference, and all activities throughout the product are aligned to that index. Regardless of what grade you teach, you should easily be able to pick and choose grade-appropriate affixes to use with your students and to differentiate your instruction with these materials as needed.

Resources featured within this product include:

* Over 40 drill cards for affixes and their meanings

* A "Morpheme Munch" game to help students distinguish between word parts that are, and are not, morphemes. (Suitable for grades K, 1, 2, 3)

* A "Morpheme Memory Match" game modeled after the game of concentration, in which students try to match affixes to their meanings. (Suitable for all grades K-6)

* A "Make-a-Monster" activity in which students play with word parts to create a fun monster name. Additionally, students must apply their knowledge of morphemes to explain the meaning of their monsters. (Suitable for grades K, 1, 2, 3)

Please note that while this product contains resources for Morphemic Awareness instruction with grades K-6th, most of the activities do target lower elementary grades, as specified in the above descriptions.

* Need additional morphology resources to extend your instruction with prefixes, suffixes, and roots? Check out these products, now available in the Tally Tales TPT store!
