This set of task cards helps students learn how common prefixes and suffixes affect word meaning.

Each task card includes a word and a sentence that provides context for the word. After reading the word and sentence, student will choose the answer choice that best defines the word.

I have also provided a second set of cards without the sentences (identical otherwise). This allows for differentiation within your classroom and also allows you to see who understands the word meanings without needing to use context clues.

Includes the following prefixes and suffixes:

  • un-
  • pre-
  • re-
  • dis-
  • -able
  • -ful
  • -less

This resource includes:

  • 48 task cards (24 in each set)
  • Recording sheet
  • Answer key

DIGITAL OPTION: This product is enabled as an Easel Activity, so you can assign it directly in Google Classroom and use it to create interactive tasks for your students. Students can use the pen tool to circle their answer choices on the task cards. You can also print the PDF as you normally would. For more information on Easel Activities see this GETTING STARTED GUIDE.
