Use this product to teach the prefixes: re-, pre-, in-, ex-, e-.
Affixes and roots help to unlock the meaning of unknown words so I have designed this product to introduce common prefixes. Because students need repeated interaction with content they are learning, there are eight various activities included in this product to engage students with words using these prefixes. For example, there are matching games to review the prefixes and their meanings. Additional activities require students to process their understanding in different ways such as drawing pictures to illustrate word meaning, using context clues to determine word meaning, and searching the dictionary and thesaurus to find synonyms. Finally, a two-step assessment is provided in which students must 1) use the meaning of a prefix and root to determine word meaning and 2) use the meaning of the word to understand the context in which it is used in order to answer questions.
