Understanding prefixes, suffixes, and affixes significantly contributes to vocabulary development, reading comprehension, and other literacy skills. Students with solid morphological awareness skills can better decode and understand unknown (or less familiar) words.

This resource includes over 200 pages that are perfect for boosting your students’ morphological awareness skills in a systematic, evidence-based way! The materials build in difficulty and provide activities for a variety of language levels.

You’ll love this no-prep product for consistent, targeted practice for your students with morphological and vocabulary needs. Just print and go!

All worksheets are also available in Google Slides™️ format so you can save paper or use this product in teletherapy sessions.

Here’s what’s inside:

  • 28 Prefix Worksheets
  • 22 Suffix Worksheets
  • 5 Direct Teaching Anchor Charts
  • 52 Word Building Practice Sheets (2 levels of interactive word building practice!)
  • 20 Word Study Worksheets

All worksheets are available in color and outline versions! Materials are included for 50 different prefixes and suffixes including the 10 most common affixes: dis-, re-, un-, over-, in-, -s, -ly, -ing, -ed, and -est.

Worksheets introduce the affix and give multiple examples of words and visuals that use each one. Practice sentences teach students the many ways we can use prefixes and suffixes!

My word building practice sheets come in two levels and give your students extra practice making new words from root words.

Word study worksheets give your students a chance to study and manipulate individual words and their affixes.

This packet is everything you need for targeting prefixes and suffixes! You’ll have materials for direct teaching and targeted practice.

Here's some reasons why other SLPs have loved this resource:

♥ ”This resource is one of my go-to tools for students working on vocabulary (building foundational skills while still appealing to my older students). It's beautifully designed and includes so many features for explicit teaching and structured practice! Thank you so much for putting this together, Shannon!” - Holly the SLP

♥ ”This is brilliant and helps children with vocabulary/semantic needs learn how to learn and break down words to decode meaning. Excellent, clear and well made.” - Bethany S.

♥ ”EXCELLENT! As I expected nothing less! This resource is thorough and extensive. I LOVE the explicit and systematic supports, including all the visuals and worksheets! This approach really has helped my students to better grasp morphological structures!” - KKnight Therapy
