Here's a hands-on, creative way for your students to practice defining prefixes and suffixes. The finished products make a unique bulletin board or fun school hallway display!
Students begin by completing a worksheet containing 20 sentences. For each sentence, they must circle the affixed word, and the write its meaning on the line following the sentences.
When they have completed the worksheet, students assemble the craftivity. They choose five words with prefixes and 5 words with suffixes to write on their eggs. They also write the meaning of the affixed word. They underline the affix and the meaning. Finally, students color, cut, and glue!
Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)
This product contains TWO worksheets.
A. The first one contains the basic affixes (pre-, re-, un-, mis-, dis-, -ful, -er, -est, -less, & -er). This worksheet was designed for second and third grade students.
B. The second one contains more advanced affixes (over-, under-, co-, in-, non-, -able, -ess, -y, -ly, & -ness.) This worksheet was designed for students in 4th grade and higher.
(I plan to have my fourth and fifth graders complete BOTH worksheets!)
