PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I was having a difficult time helping one of the students I tutor distinguish between when to use which prefix, especially when the prefixes meant the same thing. For example, she would put “nonpolite” for “impolite”. I decided repeated exposure was the best way to help her remember these kinds of words. In this game students must decide if a prefix can be matched with a root-word or not.

Included are:
1 game board with 8 prefixes on it (re, un, dis, in, im, pre, de, mis)
5 pages of root word cards (8 cards per page) for a total of 40 cards (4 are blank for you to write your own root words
2 record sheets – one where students only write down the words they created, and one where they also have to write the definition.

Everything is decorated in a construction theme so students can “construct” words with prefixes.

Directions:
Set up- you need a blank die, put the game board in the middle of all the players, put all the root- word cards in a pile upside-down.
Choose a player to go first.
The first player rolls a blank die onto the game board. Whichever prefix the die lands on is the prefix the player will use for that turn.
After finding out which prefix they will be using, the player turns over the root- word card on top of the pile. If the prefix and word go together to make a word, the player gets to keep the card. If the word is not a real word it goes in a discard pile.
The rest of the players take turns playing in the same way until they run out of root-word cards.
The player with the most cards when the root-word cards run out is the winner.
