Product Description
This single sheet combines 30 pages of information on meaning and usage of different parts of words: prefixes, suffixes, and roots. This single page can be the base of lessons on synonyms and antonyms, figuring out the meaning of a new word by recognizing parts, and understanding spelling and pronunciation of words based on recognizing the etymology of them. I have used it for high school students to help increase their vocabulary scores for state exit exams and for English Language Learners to help build their vocabulary and understanding of English words that derived from other languages. One box will show many parts of words that have the same meaning, the box next to it will give the meaning and examples. Across from that box, we'll see an opposite meaning and examples next to another box that has parts of words that have the opposite meaning. On the bottom of the page, we have a list of more root words that are not paired with opposites. Students who use this sheet as a reference before checking a dictionary increase their understanding of the English language more fully and rapidly. I also use it to make fun activities with students where they make up their own words using these parts of words, and have other students guess the meaning of those words.
