Teaching students about prefixes, suffixes and root words is one strategy I use to improve vocabulary. This comprehensive morphological instruction packet includes visuals for 92 different root, prefix, and suffix words as well as 180 pictured vocabulary words containing the targeted root, prefixes and suffixes. A variety of hands on activities are provided as well as worksheets for home or classroom practice and answer keys.
I have provided definitions for each of the 180 vocabulary words that demonstrate how the prefix, suffix or root word impacts the meaning of the word so that you can teach the concept. For example: biography is book WRITTEN about someone's LIFE.
Don't need visuals and definitions? Check out my other prefix, suffix and root word product:

I have used this product with upper elementary to middle school students. The visuals and written assists makes this product useful for a variety of grade levels. Grade level target suggestions are included in this packet.
