Introduce or review prefixes and suffixes using the examples provided. The example of a prefix is -re (again), which is added to the root word, "read," and creates the new word, "reread." The example of a suffix is -ful (full of), which is added to the root word, "help," and creates the new word, "helpful."
Students will read the words, "dislike," "careful," and "misspell," and write the root words. They will read a table of words and highlight the prefixes. Next, they will read words with suffixes, and separate the root word and suffix. They will also drag puzzle pieces that contain root words and suffixes together to create words. They will then read a list of 5 words and use the prefixes to determine the meaning of the words. Students will sort words by their meanings: "more" or "without." They will also write sentences using affixed words, including "unzip" and "refilll."
