Prefix and Suffix Game
Students will determine the meaning of the new word formed when a known prefix is added to a known word (e.g., happy/unhappy, tell/retell).
Spark engagement and build vocabulary skills with this high interest affix center game. Use in pairs or Kagan teams (2-6 players).
Students will acquire fluency with affixes while using their "light saber" to slash the affixes from unfamiliar words. Then the students will record their thinking and discuss the meaning of the word parts with their group while finding the meaning of the "Star Word."
