Introduce your students to prefixes and suffixes with this comprehensive resource! Students will learn to use words with prefixes and suffixes in a variety of ways, and will understand how they change the meaning of root words.
This resource has 19 pages of posters, worksheets, crosswords, word searches, and puzzles to serve as in introduction to prefixes and suffixes. Only two prefixes (re- and un-) and two suffixes (-ly and -ful) are included. This packet is perfect for students who are just starting to add prefixes and suffixes to root words.
Included in this resource:
~2 colorful posters: one for "Prefix" and one for "Suffix"
~4 root word worksheets. Students add a prefix or suffix to a root word and write the meaning of the new word that is made. One page for each prefix/suffix.
~4 fill in the blank worksheets with ten sentences. One page for each prefix/suffix.
~2 word sorts: one for prefixes and one for suffixes (The words to cut and paste for both word sorts are on a separate page)
~2 word searches: one for prefixes and one for suffixes
~2 sets of word part puzzles to be cut out and glued to a separate piece of paper (separate blank paper not included. I would use construction paper). One for prefixes and one for suffixes.
Thumbnail answer keys are included for all of the worksheets except for the word sorts.
