This “Number/Quantity Prefix Vocabulary Activities” product provides students with lots of fun & engaging opportunities to read and work with the definitions of an assortment of prefixes and words containing these prefixes with a “number” or “quantity” meaning.
Each prefix (sometimes combined with another prefix)features:
• a definition/picture graphic page
• a page with several words formed with the prefix and a traditional definition
• a “complete the sentence” worksheet
• a true/false activity in which the teacher reads a sentence with a word and context clues, and students give a thumbs up/thumbs down if the statement is true or false based on what they know about the word meaning
In addition to these pages, 9+ unique practice pages are included with some of the more common number prefixes being practiced. Please take a look at the preview for a sneak peek at the quality, creativity, and reading level of these pages:
• 2 “Illustrate” pages-students read a (usually silly) phrase including several prefixes, and draw a picture to match
• “Syllables”- Students sort vocabulary words into 3, 4, or 5 syllable categories (cut & glue activity)
• “Find & List” - Students locate and record vocabulary words that fit a given definition or category (i.e. “Find 5 words that are related to or associated with using a voice”).
• “Crossword Puzzle” - 2 versions included for differentiation-one with a word box and one with no word box
• “Prefix or no Prefix” – students read words, look at their spelling, and determine if the letter sequence represents a prefix or not (“trick” has “tri”, but it is NOT a prefix)
• “Simple Definition Categorization” – Students fill in a chart with headings of “number” “what?” (bilingual = two languages)
• “Sentence writing” – a guided lesson in which students consider sentence construction that includes enough details to give the reader context clues about the meaning of the word with the number prefix.
• 2 “What’s Happening Here?” - worksheets that have a detailed silly illustration- Students find pictures of vocabulary words, record them, and then write a description of what is in the picture. An example paragraph is given if the teacher chooses to model the activity.
This product also includes two versions of word cards with the word on half of the cards and definitions on the other half. (20 words & definitions- one grayscale set & one colorful set). These cards can be used for partner practice or vocabulary games such as “Memory”.
