Prefixes and Suffixes! This Prefixes, Suffixes and Root Words Bundle is a resource I created to help students recognize affixes and roots and memorize their meanings. By helping your students memorize the meanings of prefixes and suffixes they’ll have a much easier time comprehending difficult words they come across in their reading. This is one of the best vocabulary building exercises I’ve used with my class.

This Prefixes, Suffixes and Root Words set includes:
• 20 suffix flashcards
• 20 prefix flashcards
• 24 root word flashcards
• Plenty of blank flashcard templates for students to add more prefixes, suffixes and root words to as they come across them in their reading and writing
• Bookmarks that come with each set that list the prefixes, suffixes, root words, their definitions, and examples of words that include them.
• A template for a labeled box that students can cut out, write their name on and color to store their prefix, suffix, and root word cards in.
The front of each card has the prefix, suffix or root word as well as a space for students to sketch a picture or symbol to help them remember it. Allowing students to draw pictures or symbols to help them remember the word (non-linguistic representation) is a research-based strategy for increasing student achievement that I’ve seen work again and again in my own classroom.
The back of each card has the definition of the prefix, suffix or root word as well as an example of one or two words with it in them. There is space to either write the definition of each example word or add more examples of words that use the prefix, suffix or root depending on the teacher’s preference. I also included blank cards to print out for students so they can make more prefix, suffix or root word cards as they find more examples in their reading that they want to study.
