Spring and Easter Fun: Are You a Word Eggs-pert?
This product includes a 28 slide PowerPoint presentation and 2 PRINTABLES with ANSWER KEYS.
The prefix EX is very common in English. EX is not always pronounced “eks” but sometimes it is pronounced “eggs”. This is a fun exercise to incorporate into your teaching around Easter time.
The PowerPoint presentation includes 25 different words that have the prefix EX. The first slide has only the definition and spaces for the missing letters of the word it defines. Students will need to guess the correct word. In the following slide the correct word will appear in the spaces provided. Some examples of words presented are explode, experience, expert, excuse, exactly, exaggerate etc. The PowerPoint can be used to prepare the students to do the first printable.
In the first PRINTABLE, “Be a Word Eggs-pert” students will be given a clue to discover a word that begins with the prefix EX. Teachers can use this exercise to teach about prefixes or to work on pronunciation in an ESL classroom.
The second PRINTABLE “Scrambled Egg-Words” is a fun exercise that continues with the same vocabulary words found in the first printable. Students will see how quickly they can unscramble the words. Once again all the words begin with the prefix EX.
My students have always enjoyed this exercise around Easter time. I hope you and your students enjoy it, too.
