I'm not a fan of worksheets, so when it comes to understanding and using prefixes and suffixes, a foldable came to mind. The foldable I've created allows you to cut the three prefix flaps and two suffix flaps and fold them back. When I did this with my class of 2nd graders, we applied little drops of glue to the back of the sections that say, "Prefix," "Base Word," and "Suffix" and then glued it into our interactive notebooks. My kiddos loved assembling their word parts foldables. Check out what it looks like here
After we had everything in place, we talked about the meaning of each prefix and wrote it on the back of each flap. Then I encouraged my kiddos to generate examples of words containing each prefix which were written on their lined paper. This was extremely meaningful to them, and they had a blast brainstorming examples. By putting it in their interactive notebooks, it allowed them to go back to it as a reference when they were writing as well as add more words to it later on.
