This PowerPoint slide show and pdf presentation are on the suffixes -er and -est. They can be taught as a whole class lesson (with the assistance of a projector), small group, or one-on-one.
--This presentation will allow you to either introduce and/or review what suffixes are.
--They will also be given the meanings of two suffixes -er and -est.
--The suffix –er is added to 10 root words. Students will be able to give the new meanings of words with the suffix –er added.
--The suffix –est is added to 10 root words. Students will be able to give the new meanings of words with the suffix –est added.
--The pacing is completely up to you.
My 2nd grade students have earned their black belts in affixes because they have been practicing with these presentations since the beginning of the school year.
This is geared for 2-3 graders.
