Created to go with Harcourt Spelling Practice. This organizer has students break down words to look at the prefix and the root words. They are asked to explain what the whole word means by looking at what the prefix means and what the root means. Great to help students focus on using prefixes and roots to learn spelling skills and word understanding. You can explain that if you know what a prefix means, you can easily figure out many other words that have the same prefix, this works with root words as well. Could be used as assessment to asses student understanding of prefixes. Can be assigned as homework, done in class, in centers, as assessment!
