Base Words and Affixes for Beginners Practice Sheets: Common Core grammar!
Introduce your students to base words, prefixes, and suffixes using this set of base words & affixes for beginners practice sheets! Set of 11 practice sheets (with three anchor charts!) introduces students to the concept of base words being words we can add word parts to (prefixes and suffixes) to change the meanings. Packet then moves on to teach/review the meaning of common affixes and practice adding those affixes to base words. Packet culminates with students applying their new knowledge by writing sentences using words with affixes appropriately.
Use as guided practice, independent practice, morning work or homework!
Set includes 11 practice sheets plus 3 anchor charts for teaching the concept. No instructional plans are included, simply print and use to support your own Common Core language instruction! However, the scaffolding of the the sheets provides an excellent framework for a week of language lessons teaching base words and affixes. Use the concept in each sheet to plan your grammar mini-lesson and you are set!
