The Prefix Spinner Game is an easy to use product that helps students understand prefixes and root words. This game focuses on the prefixes mid-, pre-, out-, over-, bi-, and de-. Students are asked to spin, and land on a prefix. It is their job to create a word using the prefix correctly. The Prefix Spinner Game reinforces the idea that root words must carry their own meaning. Correct words result in a point.
Other ideas and information:
-On the recording sheet, ask students to underline the root word.
-If you are are a Scott Foresman Reading Street series in your classroom, this game goes perfectly with Unit 4 Week 3.
