In this poster set you will find one suffix poster for each of the 4 main parts of speech: Nouns, Verbs, Adjectives, and Adverbs. The purpose behind categorizing suffixes in this way is to show students that suffixes affect a word’s part of speech and can be used as a tool for understanding a word’s meaning.
Strategies to teach using the posters:
When clarifying for unknown words, identifying the word’s part of speech gives the reader a clue to the meaning of the word.
A suffix can give a clue to whether the word is a noun, verb, or describing word with in a given context.
If the reader knows the meaning of the suffix, he/she will have another clue for clarifying unknown words.
