This product has four sets of prefix/suffix cards to sort. I have included ideas for use as well. There is a template for the words to be sorted. Copy several blank templates to keep handy in your center. Students can either cut and paste the cards, or they can color in the words on the cards and write the words in the template. Enjoy!
NEW: I added the fourth sort, ESL Insights (guide for teachers of ELLs), core standards, and a new title.
Use conventional spelling for high-frequency and other studied words and for adding suffixes to base words (e.g., sitting, smiled, cries, happiness).
Determine the meaning of the new word formed when a known affix is added to a known word (e.g., agreeable/disagreeable, comfortable/uncomfortable, care/careless, heat/preheat).
Use a known root word as a clue to the meaning of an unknown word with the same root (e.g., company, companion).
Use common, grade-appropriate Greek and Latin affixes and roots as clues to the meaning of a word (e.g., telegraph, photograph, autograph).
