This colorful heart shape is a reminder of Valentine's Day and the goodness of a person who you want to be your Valentine.
AND, it also helps students clearly see the difference a SUFFIX can make to a ROOT word.
Suffixes that result in positive meanings will be colored one way, while words whose meaning now is negative with a suffix will be colored a different color. Example: HARMFUL is negative; while HARMLESS is positive! JOYLESS and then JOYFUL, WORTHY vs. WORTHLESS! Some words are simply kind and provide many positive, and inspirational words.
