This spooky game includes 36 root words and 6 different prefixes for a unique, engaging printable board game (available in color and black/white). To play the printable game you will be game pieces and dice. You may also want to have a dictionary handy while playing this game.
- Pass out game cards with word roots (each player should have the same number of cards). Place any extra cards in the middle of the game board on the ghost photo.
- Have players place their game pieces on either one of the spider webs. Players will take turns rolling the dice and moving around the game board. Players can move in either direction when they take their turn. There is no start/finish on the game board.
- When a player lands on a space and has a root word that can be grouped with the prefix on that space to make a real word, the player places the root word card in the middle. Have students use words in sentences or define words for additional practice. The goal is to be the first player to get rid of all your word cards.
- If the player doesn’t have a root word that can match with the prefix they land on, have them come up with a root word that would go with that prefix for additional practice.
A very special PowerPoint activity is also included in this bundle. There is a spinner in the PPT activity that spins to a specific prefix. You can have students name a word that includes the target prefix or use the printable root word cards with the spinner to have student eliminate their cards in the same way as they would for the board game.
