This colorful set of penguin themed suffix activities includes the suffixes ful, ness, less, ment, able/ible, and tion. Ten pages of activities are included that focus on identifying and matching the suffix in words and adding suffixes to base words. A matching game is included (which would be suitable for a file folder game or a center/station) in which students match words with suffixes with their suffix and meaning. Recording sheets are also provided for students to isolate the parts of the words and record their meanings.
Additional pages include:
Less and Ful Tree: a word ladder where students move up the tree by manipulating base words and the suffixes ful and less.
Suffix Penguin Suffix Hunt: Students hunt for words with suffixes in them a short story about South Pole Suffix Penguin and record them.
Word building: Students add suffixes to base words to change their meaning.
