These task cards will help your students understand and apply the following Common Core Standard for 4th grade:
CCSS4 L.4C Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases based on grade 4 reading and content, choosing flexibly from a range of strategies—Use common, grade-appropriate Greek and Latin affixes and roots as clues to the meaning of a word.
I would recommend printing pages 3-6 on cardstock and laminating them for future use. The first card is a reference with the meanings of the suffixes that will help students answer the following questions. Page 7 is an answer sheet that can be cut in half and page 8 is an answer key.
These task cards can be used in small groups, in literacy centers, or as activities for fast finishers. We also like to use them to play SCOOT in my classroom. (A game kind of like musical chairs where one card is at each chair and students move around the room when music is playing and stop and answer the task card when the music stops!).
