The game bundle includes 8 different suffixes and 144 word roots. Additional game card templates are also included.
Place all the raindrop cards in one pile and the raincloud cards in another pile. Have students pick a card from each pile and read the word root with suffix. Have students decide if the new “word” created is a real word or not. Talk about word meaning with the added suffix.
Choose 3-4 suffixes. Have student sort the word roots into groups depending on which suffixes they match with (or place in “trash” for word roots that cannot match with any suffixes you use). Some word roots will have more than one suffix that can be added.
