I have several students who are specifically learning meanings of common affixes and how they change the meanings of root words. I created this page as a lesson to expose them to 8 common prefixes and 8 common suffixes, learn their meaning, and apply their knowledge to transform root words in 22 practice problems. It's great for students working on grammar, morphology (word endings/beginnings are a big part of the lesson), and semantics (because it includes a discussion of word meanings, and what they learn can help them in their vocabulary expansion - and you can even have them use the new words in sentences).
Included: Lists of 16 total common affixes with meanings and examples, 22 application practice problems, answer/explanation page
