Prefixes, Suffixes, Synonyms, Antonyms - Spring Vocabulary Practice - This PowerPoint presentation provides students with practice using these four important vocabulary skills. The content and appearance of the slides is spring themed with topics like spring sports and outdoor activities.
The prefix activities ask students to choose the correct words to complete sentences, tell what the prefixes mean, and list words with certain prefixes. Prefixes include: con-, com-, pro-, ambi-, amphi-, sub-, bi-, aer-, hydro-, micro-, mini-, deca-, deci- semi-, and hemi-.
The suffix activities ask students to choose words to complete sentences, identify the parts of speech, and list words with certain suffixes. Suffixes include: -ous, -ist, -ian, -ary, -ery, -ory, -ate, -and -less. The synonym and antonym activities ask students to chose synonyms or antonyms replace specific words in a sentence or to complete a sentence, and to list synonyms or antonyms for given words.
