PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Prefixes carry meaning and are powerful vocabulary builders. They are added before root words to modify the meaning of the new word. To build this concept, Prefix Match notes the prefix meaning under the prefix.

Each of the 12 Prefix Match sets each covers 15 prefixes. In the manipulative sets, students arrange root words in a column. The root words in Level A do not have suffixes. Students then use the sentences to figure out the combinations. These cloze sentences advance vocabulary development by linking usage and comprehension to the words formed.

Prefixes are placed at the beginning of words to modify meaning. Learning approximately 20 high-utility prefixes can significantly enhance one’s ability to analyze word meaning. Each prefix card has its meaning written underneath. In time, students will memorize the meanings.

The CCSS for ELA emphasize vocabulary development throughout the school day and in all subjects. Despite the fact that most vocabulary is acquired indirectly, research suggests that vocabulary can be improved with explicit instruction. Reading Manipulatives vocabulary products build word knowledge with intuitive, holistic manipulatives that include cloze sentences to assure that students use words properly in context. For teachers who do not wish to prepare manipulatives or consider manipulatives unworkable in their classroom structure, PDFs are included that convert the content of the manipulatives to worksheets.
