Suffixes Task Cards provide students in middle school and upper elementary grades with practice on the important vocabulary skill of using suffixes. Included are lots of suffixes and a variety of activities.

Practicing with these cards, students learn the meanings/parts of speech that various suffixes give to a word, and they learn to build and use words with suffixes.

The activities include:

  • Word maps
  • Fill in the blanks
  • Define the words
  • Word pairs
  • Illustrate the meanings
  • Suffixes tell parts of speech
  • Sort

See the preview for more sample cards.

These task cards are designed specifically for middle school and upper elementary kids. The cards are large – two cards per page and have more content per card than many of the smaller task cards – perfect for older kids who can handle more than one quick question per card.

Each card provides a short assignment that is a great length for centers, partner work, independent work, or class games like Footloose and Scoot. A list of suggestions for ways to use task cards and a list of suggestions for easy differentiation with task cards are included with this set.

Also included is a blank answer sheet for students to fill in their answers.

Providing practice in the use of suffixes is a great way to help students develop their reading comprehension and written composition skills as well as their vocabulary. The variety of cards in this set will make it easy to differentiate for students of different abilities or students who work at different rates.

These task cards support standards for both reading and language.

The Easel Activity is a digital version that is ready to use with one card per slide. It is ready for student use with answer boxes and directions already in place.

For the Google Slides version, see Suffixes Task Cards and Google Slides.

You can see more vocabulary activities including slide presentations, activity sheets, and more task cards for lots of vocabulary topics including prefixes, suffixes, roots, multiple meaning words, connotations, and figurative language in the Vocabulary Section of this store.
