This interactive SMARTboard lesson is both a mini lesson and a practice activity for your students. Begin with it as a mini lesson to teach how suffixes added to words change the word. For example: Slides show specifically how a noun can change to a verb when a suffix is added. This is just one of the 6 rules included in the lesson. Suffixes include those that make words plural (s and es), ful, ly, ment, tion, able, ible. Two video/song links provide high interest material to keep your students' attention. The last slide has a direct link to a relaxation song while the students are trying to write as many words with suffixes as they can. This lesson can easily be broken down into several days. All slides are self checking so it's great to put in a center or station after you have used it in a group lesson. Great for whole class, small group, or independent work. Created with Smart Notebook 11.
